DECISION No 1359/2013/EU OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL

of 17 December 2013

amending Directive 2003/87/EC clarifying provisions on the timing of auctions of greenhouse gas allowances

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, and in particular Article 192(1) thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the European Commission,

After transmission of the draft legislative act to the national parliaments,

Having regard to the opinion of the European Economic and Social Committee (1),

After consulting the Committee of the Regions,

Acting in accordance with the ordinary legislative procedure (2),

Whereas:

(1)

Article 10(4) of Directive 2003/87/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (3) does not specify how volumes of greenhouse gas emission allowances to be auctioned are to be distributed over the trading period.

(2)

For the purposes of legal certainty and market predictability, it should be clarified that, in order to ensure the orderly functioning of the market, the Commission is able in exceptional circumstances to adapt the auction timetable pursuant to Article 10(4) of Directive 2003/87/EC.

(3)

Directive 2003/87/EC should therefore be amended accordingly,

HAVE ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

In the first subparagraph of Article 10(4) of Directive 2003/87/EC the following sentences are added:

‘Where an assessment shows for the individual industrial sectors that no significant impact on sectors or subsectors exposed to a significant risk of carbon leakage is to be expected, the Commission may, in exceptional circumstances, adapt the timetable for the period referred to in Article 13(1) beginning on 1 January 2013 so as to ensure the orderly functioning of the market. The Commission shall make no more than one such adaptation for a maximum number of 900 million allowances.’.

Article 2

This Decision is addressed to the Member States.

Done at Brussels, 17 December 2013.
