Welcome to the Swiss Emissions Trading Registry


Important information

Due to the current developments regarding the Coronavirus measures and the resulting limited support possibilities, all user access to the Swiss Emissions Trading Registry will be blocked as of Wednesday, 18.03.2020 (12:00 local time).

All transactions validated by transaction validators before Wednesday, 18.03.2020 (12:00 local time) will still be executed.

From Thursday, 19.03.2020 (12:00 local time), the registry will likely not be available until at least the end of April 2020. This means that you will no longer be able to log in as a user and no transactions will be executed (this applies to the sending and receiving of transactions).

Pursuant to Article 48 paragraph 2 letter b of the CO2 Ordinance, the auction from 09.03.2020 (12:00) to 11.03.2020 (17:00) was cancelled without any award because the clearing price differed significantly from the relevant price on the secondary market in the EU.

The auction of emission allowances (CHU2) announced for 23.03.2020 to 25.03.2020 will not take place. The new date can be announced in April 2020 at the earliest.

Important information for installation operators in the Swiss ETS: The deadline for surrendering emission allowances (30.04.2020) in the Swiss Emissions Trading Registry will be extended for the time being and until further notice.

Additions, changes or further information to the above information will be announced immediately by e-mail and published on the registry home page and on the a href="https://www.bafu.admin.ch/emissionsregistry" target="_blank">FOEN website.

The registry helpdesk will only be available with limited capacity in the near future and longer response times must be expected.

The Registry helpdesk will be closed on the following dates: 10-13 April / 21-22 May / 1 June 2020.
