Rules of realization of project mechanisms in the field of regulation of emissions and absorption of greenhouse gases

1. General provisions

1. These rules of realization of project mechanisms in the field of regulation of emissions and absorption of greenhouse gases (further - Rules) are developed according to the subitem 29) of article 17 of the Ecological Code of the Republic of Kazakhstan (further - the Code) and determine procedure for realization of project mechanisms in the field of regulation of emissions and absorption of greenhouse gases.

2. In these rules the following concepts are used:

1) the basic scenario – the scenario reflecting the level of emissions of greenhouse gases or level of absorption of greenhouse gases in case of lack of the offered internal project in comparison with which the reached amount of emission reduction and (or) absorption of greenhouse gases is estimated;

2) the project period – the term during which release of project carbon units on the basis of periodic confirmation and approval of project deliverables is made or can be made;

3) project carbon units - units of internal emission reduction, emission reduction unit, unit of certified emission reduction;

4) the project mechanism - consecutive process of development and the projects implementation directed to emission reduction and (or) increase in absorption of greenhouse gases according to the procedure and criteria established by the Kyoto protocol to the Framework convention of the United Nations on climate change and (or) the ecological legislation of the Republic of Kazakhstan;

5) basic level of absorption of greenhouse gases - the size of the absorption of greenhouse gases for certain period under existing conditions operation without project implementation directed to increase in absorption of greenhouse gases expressed in carbon dioxide equivalent tons;

6) increase in absorption of greenhouse gases - settlement increase in absorption of greenhouse gases in relation to the basic scenario;

7) emission reduction of greenhouse gases - settlement decrease in emissions of greenhouse gases in relation to the basic scenario;

8) basic level of emissions of greenhouse gases - the size of emissions of the greenhouse gases made by subject to emissions of these gases for certain period on condition of use of the technologies existing on this object, the equipment and under other most probable conditions which can take place without project implementation directed to emission reduction of greenhouse gases expressed in carbon dioxide equivalent tons;

9) track of I - method of implementation of projects on the mechanism of joint implementation which allows the country on condition of compliance to the requirements established by the Kyoto protocol to the Framework convention of the United Nations on climate change (further - the Kyoto protocol), to verify these projects and to introduce the corresponding quantity of emission reduction units into circulation;

10) track of II - method of implementation of projects on the mechanism of joint implementation within which these projects undergo the procedure of verification under the supervision of the authorized international body;

11) the subject of administration - the operator of installation which amount of emissions of greenhouse gases makes from ten to twenty thousand carbon dioxide equivalent tons a year, in the following regulated fields of activity: oil and gas, electrical power, mining, metallurgical, chemical, processing regarding production of building materials: cement, lime, gypsum and brick.

2. Procedure for realization of project mechanisms in the field of regulation of emissions and absorption of greenhouse gases

3. Realization of activities in the Republic of Kazakhstan on the basis of project mechanisms in the field of regulation of emissions and absorption of greenhouse gases is performed by their participants on voluntary basis and is not the basis for its financing from the government budget.

4. Project mechanisms in the field of regulation of emissions and absorption of greenhouse gases are divided in the Republic of Kazakhstan into the following types:

1) mechanism of internal emission reduction;

2) mechanism of joint implementation;

3) clean development mechanism.

5. The project mechanism of internal emission reduction of greenhouse gases is implemented by his participants on the basis of provisions of article 94-10 of the Code.

6. Projects on mechanisms of joint implementation are implemented in the territory of the republic only after passing by the Republic of Kazakhstan of procedures for determination of the assigned amount provided within the Kyoto protocol, and submission of the relevant data in the international register of transactions.

7. Project mechanisms of joint implementation, net development are implemented on the basis of provisions of Articles 6, 12 Kyoto protocols.
