HM 53 coverSince the first edition of HM 53, the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) entered Phase 3 of the Directive. Phase 3 of the Directive came into effect on the 1 January 2013 and aims to ensure the complete, transparent and accurate monitoring and reporting of greenhouse gas emissions.

The second edition of HM 53 has therefore been assembled to ensure industry is provided with appropriate up-to-date guidance which informs managers and personnel involved in measurement, of the current governing legislation and the associated requirements for measurement of emissions streams from offshore installations.

These guidelines are intended to:

  • Inform and advise key personnel of the relevant aspects of ETS and Discharge Legislation. This will promote understanding of the significance of measurement in complying with current and future legislation.
  • Summarise the uncertainty requirements applied within trading schemes.
  • Provide a list of useful references relevant to the above, for further reading.
  • Provide a framework process to ensure compliance with relevant environmental legislation.
