Technical Annual Status Report (Stage I) of CLRTAP and NECD Inventory Review for Malta

Generated by CEIP: 22 th May 2017

This status report was prepared by the EMEP Centre on Emission Inventories and Projections (CEIP) and European Topic Centre on Air and Climate Change (ETC/ACC). The Status Report provides information based on the initial checks of the CLRTAP and NECD inventories submitted in accordance with the reporting requirements of the UNECE Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution (CLRTAP) and its protocols, and for EU Member States the Directive 2001/81/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on national emission ceilings for certain atmospheric pollutants (NECD).


Review Process

The technical review of national inventories involves the checking and assessment of national data submissions with a view to improving the quality of emission data and associated information.

The annual review process is carried out in three stages in accordance with the review guidelines developed by the Task Force on Emission Inventories and Projections (TFEIP) and as agreed upon by EMEP and the Executive Body of CLRTAP in 2007: Methods and procedures for the technical review of air pollutant emission inventories reported under the Convention and its protocols ( ECE/EB.AIR/GE.1/2007/16 ).

Stage 1: An initial check of submissions for timeliness and completeness;

Stage 2: A synthesis and assessment of all national submissions with respect to consistency and comparability of data with recommendations for data quality improvement;

Stage 3: In-depth reviews of selected inventories, by pollutant, country or sector, as in the workplan agreed by the Executive Body.

If you have any comments concerning the results of the tests in this report, please contact the EMEP Centre on Emission Inventories and Projections (CEIP) by email at emep.emissions@umweltbundesamt.at
within two weeks of your receiving this Status Report.


STAGE I REVIEW TESTS

This Stage 1 Status Report documents assesses the timeliness, completeness, and format of the submitted national inventories. It presents results of these initial automated tests to countries and supports the subsequent Stage II and Stage III review process. Stage I tests are:

1a Timeliness

1b Format of submission

1c Completeness per sector for 2015 emissions

1d Completeness per pollutant of your data in the WebDab database

Data included in tests:

Emissions reported under the Convention on LRTAP.

Emissions reported under the NECD Directive to the European Commission and European Environment Agency.


1a TIMELINESS

Date of submission of NECD : 21.2.2017 , received after deadline 15.02.2017

Date of submission of CLRTAP : 21.2.2017 , received after deadline 15.02.2017

Informative Inventory Report (IIR) : Not received!


1b FORMAT OF SUBMISSION

Parties are invited to check consistency of the format via RepDab (http://www.ceip.at/repdab_howtouse) before the submission of their inventory to the UNECE secretariat, the EMEP Centre on Emission Inventories and Projections (CEIP) and/or the European Commission/European Environment Agency. This section indicates whether the data submitted were in the Nomenclature for Reporting and the files were formatted as requested in the Guidelines for Estimating and Reporting Emission data. The current standard format for reporting is NFR14. Reporting templates can be downloaded from the CEIP website (http://www.ceip.at/reporting_instructions/annexes_to_guidelines).

NECD inventory submitted in format: NFR14 (Version 2014-1) for the years 2000 to 2015

CLRTAP inventory submitted in format: NFR14 (Version 2014-1) for the years 2000 to 2015


1c COMPLETENESS PER SECTOR (YEAR 2015)

The tables below lists all sectors where 'Not Estimated (NE)' notation keys were reported for the year 2015. At the end of the table is a statistic of how many notation keys in general were reported per pollutant and a count of not estimated sectors per pollutant. If nothing at all is reported for a certain pollutant which is listed in the tables this is also indicated. For NECD you can see the sector completeness not only for 2015, but also for 2014 emission data.

1d COMPLETENESS PER POLLUTANT (entire time series)

The completeness of your data in the WebDab database has been evaluated on the basis of the criteria outlined in the 2014 Guidelines for Reporting Emission Data and Projections under the CLRTAP (ECE/EB.AIR/125):

All numbers in table are as a percentage of the total number of reporting template cells per component and time series. Flagging occurs when the number of cells containing a value or a notation key is less than 80% of the total number of cells, if there are more than 10% zeroes reported, if 'Not Estimated' is reported in cells and/or if the number of values reported is less than 10%. The completeness of CLRTAP NFR Sectors is divided in two sections: 1990 to 1999 and 2000 to 2015.
