EU ETS: Risk Assessments and Procedures
The document 'Directive 2003/87/EC – EC Monitoring and Reporting Guidelines', often referred to informally as 'the MRG', is the starting point for understanding what is required in order to comply with EU ETS requirements. However, at 85 pages long, it can be rather overwhelming in places to the non-expert!
Section 10.1 to 10.3 of the MRG covers the control system that a company puts in place to ensure that it complies with EU ETS requirements.
Companies have often found it difficult to understand exactly what they need to be doing in order to comply with these sections of the MRG; this article attempts to illustrate what is required. It applies to installations currently included under ‘phase 2’ of EU ETS, those that will be included in 'phase 3', and the aviation sector.
