On 3 May 2012, the European Commission announced its timetable regarding the activation of the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (ETSi) single registry, which will occur in June 2012. The transition will include the migration of over 30 000 EU ETS accounts from national registries. As of 14 May 2012, account holders were no longer able to open, close, or modify accounts. From 3 June until 20 June 2012, both the national registries and the single registry will be suspended. Account holders will be unable to access their existing accounts during this period. As of 20 June 2012, once the single registry is fully activated, users of the national registries will receive their new authentication credentials and thus be able to use the single registry.
