Account in the European registry

21 janvier 2014 (mis à jour le 15 novembre 2016)


Each aircraft operator shall submit to the DGAC a verified emissions report by 31st March of the year following the emissions year. By 30th April of the same year, the AO shall then transfer from its account in the European registry to the Member State’s account a quantity of allowances corresponding to its verified emissions.

Therefore, opening an account with the French national administrator of the European Registry (Caisse des dépôts et consignations - CDC) is a necessary step in this process. This account allows the operator to sell or buy allowances to or from other operators, or to participate in the auctions set up by EEA Member States.

To open its aircraft operator account, an operator has to fill up a form, and submit all the required documents according to the Regulation 1193/2011/EU concerning the Union registry.
The e-mail address to use to contact the CDC is the following :

And the postal address is :

Caisse des dépôts et consignations
15, quai Anatole France
75356 Paris 07 SP
France

The CDC is the unique interlocutor for all registry-related issues, such as account opening documents, account administration or auction.

The account opening and account holding rates for 2015 have been published through the following decree : arrêté du 15 décembre 2015 (in French).

 

EU ETS aviation civil penalties

Pursuant to the Directive 2003-87/CE of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing a scheme for greenhouse gas emission allowance and the decision 377/2013/EU of the European Parliament, Aircraft operators, within the scope of the EU emission trading scheme, have the obligation to surrender allowances annually to cover their greenhouse gas emissions.

As a reminder, Aircraft operators have the obligation to surrender allowances annually by 30 April to cover their emissions during the previous calendar year.

The Aircraft operators who fail to surrender sufficient allowances for the years 2012, 2013 and 2014 have to be held liable for the payment of an excess emissions penalty. The excess emissions penalty is 100,12 € for each tonne of carbon dioxide equivalent emitted for which the operator has not surrendered allowances, according to Article 16 of the Directive 2003-87/CE aforementioned and in accordance with the conditions and sanctions provided for in Articles L.229-18 and D. 229-37-10 of the Environment Code. The amount of the penalty is updated annually to take due account of the evolution of the Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices of the European Union.
