  3. Executive Body of CLRTAP (in December 08): • Thanked Mr. Schneider (Austria) and welcomed election of Ms. Vidič (Croatia) as the EMEP Steering Body Chair; • Thanked Ms.Rypdal and Norway and approved UK’s offer to lead TFEIP and Mr. C. Dore as the new Chair; • Welcomed the efficient transfer of responsibilities for emission work from MSC-West to CEIP, and the work of CEIP in 2008; • Noted the invitation to UNFCCC secretariat to provide data to CEIP to improve stage 2 review results and help fill data gaps in the UNECE region;

  4. Guidelines for Reporting Emission Data -EB 26: • Welcomed the further work by TFEIP, legal experts and WGSR in revising the Guidelines; • Approved the Guidelines as amended at the session (ECE/EB.AIR/97); • Requested the secretariat to make the Guidelines available and CEIP its annexes (; • Requested WGSR to further examine the adopted amendments, if necessary; • Adopted decision 2008/16 on emission data reporting; • Called upon Parties within EMEP to report in 2009 according to the revised Guidelines, as adopted.

  5. Guidelines for Reporting Emission Data - ECE/EB.AIR/97 adopted by EB 26: • International aviation is defined in section II B. of annex I to these Guidelines. Emissions of aviation (national and international) during the LTO cycle belong to the national totals. Cruise emissions from domestic and international aviation should not be included in national totals but reported separately as memo items in table VI.1 of annex IV to these Guidelines. 18. International shipping is defined in section II.B of annex I to these Guidelines. Emissions from fuels used for international maritime shipping should not be included in the national totals, but should be reported separately as a memo item. Emissions from international inland shipping should be included in the national totals for the part that is emitted on national territory. In addition, they should be reported separately as memo items in table IV.1 of annex IV to these Guidelines.

  6. Stage 3 in-depth reviews of emission inventories EB26 • Welcomed the stage 3 reviews to improve the quality of emission data reporting, • Invited Parties to nominate review experts and to financially support EECCA experts; • Decided that review reports should be published on the CEIP website upon finalization; EB Bureau (April 09) • Recommended that EB called again Parties to nominate experts; • Approved the list of 10 Parties to be reviewed in 2009; invited the secretariat to inform them and CEIP to proceed with the reviews; • Invited EMEP SB to submit to EB in December 2009 a proposal for Parties to be reviewed in 2010 – 2015

  7. 2009 CLRTAP Workplan: Emissions (1)- Main activities by TFEIP • Evaluate and support stage 2 and 3 reviews of data; further develop guidance for reviewers and review templates; • Improve quality of reported emission data for HM and POPs and comparability with modelling results (TFEIP, MSC-E, TFMM); • Improve emission reporting in EECCA; • With EEA, develop a maintenance plan of the Guidebook for adoption by the EMEP SB in Sept. 2009 (Complete, review and publish the revised Guidebook in 2008); • Hold 22th TFEIP meeting 11-12 May 2009 in Vienna and report thereon to the EMEP SB (Sept. 2009)

  9. Revision of Gothenburg Protocol: • Scope: • Emission ceilings; environmental targets (including non-binding aspirational targets for 2050) • Guidance documents; • Annexes (ELVs for SO2,NOx, VOCs - and PM) • Increased flexibility for EECCA • Process: • Review of obligations completed in Dec. 07; • April 08 WGSR started negotiating for further emission reduction obligations; • In line with workplan and timetable for deliverables; • Adoption of a revised (or new?)
