What Should You Do For Your Emission Verification Report?

With the adoption of the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) by the European Union (EU) Commission, emissions from imported goods must be reported. We would like to share with you the minimum requirements for this reporting and the current situation.

1-Identification code of the production facilities where the products are produced.

This code is a coding system given by the public for all facilities of each manufacturer in the country within the scope of the EU ETS system. This coding needs to be assigned during the carbon exchange development process in our country or determined by the Ministry of Commerce already.

2-Contact information of the company operating the production facility.

This contact information should be based on the physical address, trade registry number, tax number, postal code, e-mail, telephone and name and surname of the responsible person appointed by the company responsible for production.

3-Reporting period

This information should include when emissions started and their period. It can be annual or semi-annual, from December to December or from June to June. Considering the finalization time of companies’ financials, the second option seems more reasonable.

4-Information of the organization that verifies emissions

This information is in the form of the name and contact information of our organization that verifies scientifically based emission calculations. It should be in detail as stated in Article 2.

5-Accreditation number of the verification organization and accrediting organization.

Here, the information and accreditation number of the accrediting organization (Turkish Accreditation Agency in Turkey) will be reported for the verifying organization. This accreditation number must be verifiable from public sources (the website of the accrediting organization).

6-Field visit date of verification organization and reason if not done.

7-The production quantity for each declared product during the relevant reporting period.

This expression should be stated as KWH for electricity production and ton or metric ton for other productions. Not only weight but also keeping track of quantity will be useful.

8- The amount of direct emissions for each of all declared products.

Emissions are divided into two as direct and indirect emissions. Direct emissions are emissions that arise due to production and the company’s own activities, while indirect emissions are emissions that arise due to supply, distribution, and the product’s life cycle. You can contact us for details on emission calculations.

9- How each product is affected by emissions in the production facility

For example, the distribution and calculation of the electrical energy used in the production facility for each product must be determined. If we take the production of one ton of steel, it expresses the distribution of furnaces, presses, and other machines within the total. You can contact us again for such calculations.

10- Digitization of emission and energy use for each produced product.

The minimum requirements for the emission verification report mentioned above are simple, that is, they are for final products that can be defined with a single GTIP code. You can contact us for the criteria of complex products such as car or machine production.
