National emission trading register


The European directive 2003/87/CE (Emissions Trading) establishes a scheme for greenhouse gas emissions trading with assignment of permission quotes of emission trading for all installations that belong the categories Annex I (combustion and industrial installations, exception waste treatment plants and chemical installations) by means of a National Assignment Plans.

In order to implement the European directive Italy has developed a  National Register to document all operations (quote release, trasferiment, cancellation) and to show the respect of the commitments taken about the reduction for every sector.

The National Register is inserted in the frame of the european system registers, composed by national registers managed by Member States and by Community Independent Transaction Log.
