  • Built for supply chains: To comply and avoid penalties from October 2024, declarants must obtain accurate primary installation data; CarbonChain is your trusted partner as a highly specialized carbon accounting solution for metals supply chains and trades.
  • Secure, easy-to-use tools: Your suppliers’ data is in safe hands on our robust, intuitive and secure platform, only visible to the declarant requesting the data.

How to use CBAM XML files?

Importers can choose how to submit their EU CBAM declaration: as an XML file or manual data entry. Many opt for the XML file option to:

  • Allow for automation, saving time and resources;
  • Mitigate manual input errors;
  • Enable seamless integration of supplier data.

Using CarbonChain’s platform:

  • The automatic output report provides you with emissions (using default values or your supplier data if reported) for CBAM declarations in the correct XML file format;
  • The report also contains additional customs and supply chain information required to submit it to the European Commission portal

Which emissions data should a CBAM declaration XML include?

  • To comply with the EU CBAM reporting requirements in the transitional period, declarants can either use the European Commission’s official default values or primary installation-specific values from their suppliers. 
  • Default values may only be used until July 31st 2024. After this date, primary installation data must be used for reporting purposes. In certain instances, declarants can submit their report with emissions data that has been calculated or estimated by other approved means until 31st December 2024. If you do obtain primary installation data, you may go back and amend your first two CBAM reports up to 31st July 2024.
  • While default values are acceptable for the first three reporting deadlines, CarbonChain strongly recommends that declarants start using primary installation-specific data as soon as possible in their CBAM reporting. This is because suppliers need to implement their emissions monitoring methodologies as soon as possible, to ensure they can send you primary data when this becomes mandatory after 31st July 2024.
