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.
