ETS extension to maritime – timeline

ETS extension to maritime - timeline

On December 19th, 2023, EMSA (European Maritime Safety Agency) published materials from a webinar on extending the ETS (Emission Trading Scheme) to the maritime sector. Please read the information available at the link below.

The timeframe for taking specific steps to comply with the new regulations is restrictive.

All shipping companies will be required to open a Maritime Operator Holding Account („MOHA”), which will allow them to deliver and trade allowances, within 40 days of publishing the list of companies associated with the national administration authorities.

For shipping companies not included in this list, the deadline is 65 working days from the first port of call, which falls within the scope of the EU ETS Directive.

If you are looking for additional information or assistance on various issues related to the functioning of the EU ETS, please do not hesitate to contact us. We can connect you with an accredited verifier, your local Union registry administrator, or a reputable broker offering services related to purchasing European Union Allowance (EUA) units.
