Switzerland starts aviation ETS / MP submission by Sept 2017: 

Aviation activities to and from Switzerland are to be included in the Swiss ETS, according to the linking agreement. To prepare for this inclusion, aircraft operators will be required to monitor and report tonne-kilometre data (tkm data) relating to flights as specified by the Ordinance on the Acquisition and Reporting of Tonne-Kilometre Data relating to Distances Covered by Aircraft (tkm-Ordinance) during 2018. The resulting data are to serve as a basis for calculating the free allocation of aviation emission allowances for aircraft operators and the maximum amount of available aviation emission allowances in the Swiss ETS.

To ensure the correct monitoring of the data, aircraft operators who carry out activities in accordance with the tkm-Ordinance must compile a monitoring plan and submit it to the Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN) for evaluation by not later than 30 September 2017.

CORSIA 1st Milestone for Aircraft Operators: 

After many years of deliberation, the ICAO Member States agreed on October 6th 2016 to implement a Global Market-Based Measure (GMBM) to compensate post-2020 emissions growth from international aviation.

Aircraft operators, (in ICAO speak aeroplane operators) with international flights will be required to develop an emissions Monitoring Plan (MP) for submission to their State in fall 2018.

Germany has set the first milestone, the submission of an Annual Emissions Monitoring Plan, to be in the last quarter of 2018.
Next AOs will need to start monitoring their CO2 emissions from 1. January 2019 for the submission an emissions report for the CORSIA baseline calculations (years 2019 and 2020). .


Mandatory Account Confirmations: 

All aircraft operators must confirm their Account Data in the Union Register. The way to confirm official statements to each register authority is different in EU countries. Germany transmits the data by means of the virtual Post Office VPS where plant operators have to send their confirmation.

The confirmation has to take place always between 1st October and end of December and has to be sent until 31st December.

In any case it has to be confirmed that all statements/data of the register account are complete, updated, correct and exact.
