Slovakia

The Slovak Spectator reports that new rules on trading emission quotas will become effective in January 2018. This is due to an amendment to the law on emission quota trading prepared by the Slovak Environment Ministry and approved by the parliament. From January 1st, 2018, those who intend to purchase emission quotas will be able to do so “only via electronic system”. The portal informs that “the same system will be used to submit reports on greenhouse gas emissions, reports on operation and reports on verification and monitoring plans”. Also, the ways to use the income from selling the emission quota permissions are defined in the amendment.

The European Union gives Slovakia some 25 million tons of the air emission accounts (AE) each year.
