Friday, 31st January 2020 - BREXIT, communication from the European Commission


The instruments of ratification of both Parties to the Withdrawal Agreement were deposited with the Secretary-General of the Council and the Withdrawal Agreement will enter into force on 1 February 2020. This Agreement ensures that UK operators remain subject to EU ETS compliance obligations for emissions in the years 2019 and 2020. Therefore, it is no longer necessary to maintain the suspension of relevant processes for the UK. In accordance with legal provisions in force, the suspension will no longer apply and allowances issued by the UK in respect of 2019 and 2020 will not be identified by a country code nor be excluded from use for compliance. This means that from 3 February 2020 all processes for the UK in the Union Registry can again be executed.
