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 reporting deadline, 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.
