1 UN Climate Change Secretariat CDM Project Cycle calibration 1 st Sustainable Development Mechanisms Joint Coordination Workshop Bonn, Germany, March 2012 Ariesta Ningrum

2 Scope Excludes direct communication aspects – a dedicated session on Day 2 Main focus on post-registration changes Implementation timeline – what happens between now, 1 May, and 1 October? Practical tips

3 Post-registration changes: structure a)Temporary deviation from monitoring plan or monitoring methodology b)Permanent changes: i.Corrections ii.Start date of crediting period iii.Monitoring plan or monitoring methodology iv.Project/programme design

4 Post-registration changes: process - two tracks

5 Post-registration changes: criteria Changes that do NOT require prior approval by the Board (PS, Appendix 1) 1.Corrections (e.g. typo, location, name) 2.Temporary deviations from monitoring plan or applied methodology: PPs have not temporarily monitored parameters for baseline emissions, or are unable to produce evidence of such monitoring Report the parameters as zero. PPs have not temporarily monitored parameters for project emissions or are unable to produce evidence of such monitoring Assume the source of emissions operated at maximum capacity for the full period of the missing data. (for consumption of electricity, add 10% to the estimate to account for transmission and distribution losses) 3.Permanent changes from monitoring plan or applied methodology limiting to: Monitoring equipment installed has a lower accuracy level than stipulated in the methodology but the equipment is under control Calibration frequency, accuracy/type/model of meter(s) Location of meter(s)

6 Post-registration change process: criteria (cont.) Changes that do NOT require prior approval by the Board (PS, Appendix 1) 3.Permanent changes from monitoring plan or applied methodology limiting to: Monitoring equipment installed has a lower accuracy level than stipulated in the methodology but the equipment is under control Calibration frequency, accuracy/type/model of meter(s) Location of meter(s) 4.Changes to project design that do not adversely impact: additionality, applicability/application methodology under which project was registered, project scale 5.Changes specific to A/R projects (listed in the Guidelines on accounting of specified types of changes in A/R CDM project activities from the description in registered project design document Changes to start-date of CP less than 1 year (2 yrs for LDCs) do NOT require prior approval (PS, para 213) All other changes require prior approval by the Board

7 Implementation Timeline

8 Principles of Implementation Consistency in applying old/new rules: PDDs/MRs submitted under old rules shall be validated/verified and requests for registration/issuance shall be made under old rules PDDs/MRs submitted under new rules shall be validated/verified and requests for registration/issuance shall be made under new rules If requests with PDDs/MRs published under old rules cannot be submitted by 30 Sep 2012, they have to be modified to comply with new rules re-publication of PDDs/MRs is NOT needed, but modified PDDs/MRs have to be attached to validation/verification reports PPs/DOEs may voluntarily shift to new rules for PDDs/MRs published under the old rules, even before 1 October 2012 re-publication of PDDs/MRs is NOT needed, but modified PDDs/MRs have to be attached to validation/verification reports

9 Principles of Implementation – contd Any requests made under old rules continue to be processed by the Board/secretariat under old rules Any requests submitted before 1 Oct 2012 but kicked-out from the process resulting from completeness check or information & reporting check, would have to be modified to comply with new rules, if the re-submission is made after 30 Sep 2012

10 Principles of implementation – post registration changes 30 April 2012 : last day to submit any requests for Revision of Monitoring Plan, Changes from PDD, Deviation under old rules Any requests made under old rules continue to be processed by the Board/secretariat under old rules If changes are only identified only after 1 May, the new rules shall be applied Changes within Appendix 1 – shall be submitted with request for issuance Changes requiring prior approval shall be submitted before submitting request for issuance re-publication of PDDs/MRs with new form is NOT needed, but modified PDDs/MRs have to be attached to validation/verification reports

11 Practical tips For PPs: Identify changes early in the process and determine if they can be addressed by approaches in PS (Appendix 1 & para 213 for start-date of CP) Consider timing of submission and appropriate process track – selecting DOEs For DOEs: Ensure types of changes are fully described in the form (both in Issuance track as well as in Prior Approval track) Provide assessment opinion on each type of changes Ensure supporting documentation relevant to each type of changes is provided
