The registry system guarantees the exact accounting of the transactions by virtue of the Emissions Trading System, the Kyoto Protocol and Decision No. 406/2009/EC.
Due to the Commision Delegated Regulation (EU) 2023/1642 of 14th june a threshold has been initially set by the European Commission at 2 million EUA's per transaction. For more information go to Information&Regulation > Notices.
A "transaction" is any process carried out on the registry system, which includes the transfer of emission allowances, Kyoto units, units from the annual allocation of emissions, from one account to another.
"Internal" transfers of units are those where the origin registry and target registry are the same and "external" are those where the registry is different. Transfers within the Union Registry are internal transfers, regardless of whether the accounts are held in sections administered by different States.
Furthermore, we can distinguish between ordinary and special transfers. Therefore, the surrender of allowances, and the cancellation of allowances are considered special transfers.
We kindly ask you to pause in reading all the recommendations and caveats that are included in the documents attached to the tables included in this section.
