What is the CDM Executive Board?
The CDM Executive Board (CDM EB) supervises the Kyoto Protocol’s clean development mechanism under the authority and guidance of the Conference of the Parties serving as the Meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP). The CDM EB is fully accountable to the CMP.
The CDM EB will be the ultimate point of contact for CDM Project Participants for the registration of projects and the issuance of CERs.

- Accredit Designated Operations Entities (DOEs);
- Register projects (in accordance with specific procedures);
- Issue Certified Emission Reduction (CER) credits earned through CDM projects in accordance with specific procedures;
- Make publicly available information on proposed CDM projects in need of funding and investors seeking opportunities;
- Maintain a public database of CDM project activities containing information on registered project design documents, comments received, verification reports, CDM Executive Board decisions and information on all CERs issued;
- Develop and maintain the CDM registry.
The Executive Board comprises of 10 members and 10 alternate members from Parties to the Kyoto Protocol as follows:
|5 UN regional groups (1 from each)||5||5|

The Executive Board may establish committees, panels or working groups to assist it in the performance of its functions.
