Section II: Object
Revision of free allocation rules and guidance for EU ETS phase 4.
The legislative process to revise the EU ETS is currently ongoing. Once the legislative process is finalised, the relevant harmonised rules need to be updated in time for the fourth trading period (2021–2030) so that free allocation for the installations under the EU ETS can be established. The free allocation rules as well as the extensive support documentation, including the guidance documents will have to be revised and adapted accordingly and the contractor is supposed to provide assistance in this process.
The aim of this contract is to provide technical support to the Commission in the preparation of revised Union-wide rules for harmonised free allocation of emission allowances pursuant to Article 10a of Directive 2003/87/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council as well as updating and further developing guidance for the implementation of the new rules in the fourth phase of the EU ETS (2021–2030) as necessary, incorporating also relevant corrections pursuant to court judgments.
The contract consists of 3 tasks: firstly providing technical support related to the revision of the free allocation rules, secondly providing support in developing options for activity level changes, including the relevant templates and thirdly providing support in updating the relevant guidance documents.
The support also includes technical/engineering elements and the development of the electronic tools (templates) to submit the notifications.
