Background and further information:

The Climate Monitoring Mechanism Regulation (MMR) lays down a robust transparency framework for greenhouse gas emissions and other information relevant to climate change. It includes the elements necessary to track progress of the implementation of EU climate legislation and the EU's international commitments under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Kyoto Protocol.

The MMR empowers the Commission to adopt delegated acts with a view to:
- establishing substantive requirements for a Union inventory system;
- adding or deleting substances to or from the list of greenhouse gases in Annex I to the MMR or adding, deleting or amending indicators in its Annex III, and taking account of changes in global warming potentials and internationally agreed inventory guidelines; and
- setting up the Union registry.

Under Article 25(2) of the MMR, the Commission has the power to adopt delegated acts for a period of five years from 8 July 2013. The Commission is required to prepare a report in respect of this delegation of power not later than nine months before the end of the five-year period.

Over the past five years, the Commission has adopted one delegated act establishing substantive requirements for a Union inventory system and taking into account changes in the global warming potentials and internationally agreed inventory guidelines.

The Commission will continue to monitor the developments at international level and if appropriate prepare delegated acts to ensure consistency. The Commission will also continue monitoring the implementation of the adopted delegated regulations and provide for changes to these rules should the practical developments require it.
