Annual reporting of the greenhouse gas inventory is comprised of an inventory report of a specified form (NIR) and emission calculations (CRF tables), submitted annually to the European Union and to the Secretariat of the UNFCCC. The reported data relate to emissions recorded two years previously. In addition, a national communication is produced at three-year intervals, which contains more detailed information about national conditions, climate strategy and policy measures taken to reduce emissions.

Closely associated with the reporting of the inventory are also Finland's policy reports to the EU, indicators for the monitoring of climate policy and the European Commission's reports assessing the progress made towards fulfilling the commitments under the Kyoto Protocol.

On 22 December 2006, Finland submitted to the UNFCCC secretariat a report on the basis of which Finland's assigned amount of emissions will be confirmed for the 2008-2012 commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol. Once confirmed, the assigned amount cannot be changed even if emissions for the base year did change in the national greenhouse gas inventory. In future, the annual greenhouse gas inventory will form part of the reporting under the Kyoto Protocol. To be eligible to participate in Kyoto mechanisms, such as emission trading, Finnish inventories must meet the set criteria and pass the reviews of the inventories.

Reporting guidelines

The Secretariat of the UNFCCC has produced reporting guidelines for the compilation of both the annual national inventories and the national communications.

UNFCCC Reporting guidelines on national communications

The reporting is also steered by the Decision of the European Parliament and of the Council for a Monitoring Mechanism of Community GHG Emissions and the Implementation of the Kyoto Protocol.
