DEHSt informs about the extension of the deadline for submitting the aactivity data reports 2019 and 2020

The legal deadline for submitting the first activity data reports for the 4th trading period is March 31, 2021 (see Article 3 of the EU Adjustment Regulation, Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1842). The allocation procedure in the allocation period 2021-2025 is currently still being intensively prepared at European and national level. This is why operators can submit the activity data reports 2019 and 2020 in Germany as an exception and, if required, by June 30, 2021 at the latest without this having any negative consequences. DEHSt will start checking the activity data reports after this time.

As a result of the aforementioned extended period of time for submitting the activity data reports, DEHSt points out that the deadline for notifying significant changes to the method plan within the meaning of Art. 9 (5) EU-ZuVO also exceptionally to be given in the current approval notices for the method plans under the legal information will be extended to June 30th, 2021.

According to the current planning of the European Commission, emission allowances for the year 2021 can probably only be issued in summer 2021.
