The objective of the Emission Trading-I (2004-2005) IMPEL project was to identify good practice in the approaches Member States are taking to the implementation of the EU ETS.
The project on which this report is based set out to identify good regulatory practice in relation to the EU emissions trading scheme (EU ETS), which was established by Directive 2003/87/EC, and to inform the second phase of the EU ETS. It was organised through IMPEL and the information analysed in the project was obtained using a questionnaire that was distributed to regulatory authorities in a number of EU Member States. The questionnaire was finalised on the basis of discussions held at an initial IMPEL workshop (held in October 2004) of Member State experts, who are all actively involved in the regulatory aspects of the EU ETS. The draft findings, recommendations and conclusions were presented at a second workshop in March 2005, on the basis of which a draft report was produced. This was then peer reviewed by the participants of the workshops before being finalised in May 2005.
