    Change the statement on the modalities of communication (MOC)


Following the decision of the Executive Board to adopt Clean Development Mechanism Project Cycle Procedure at its 65th meeting in Bonn, project participants are required to use the CDM-MOC-FORM when submitting a new MOC statement.

The form should be used to:

      (a) Designate focal point entity(ies) and related scopes of authority
      (b) Change the designation of focal point entity/ies
      (c) Change the scope of authority assigned to existing focal point entity/ies
      (d) Change the name of focal point entity.


The designated focal point for scope (b) or the submitting project participant should use the dedicated electronic interface to complete, print, sign and upload for submission through the same interface the CDM-MOC-FORM. 

The submitting focal point (b) or project participant representative should use their MOC registered e-mail account to log into the electronic interface. They may also refer to the sample CDM-MOC-FORM standard template for detailed guidance on how to complete the form.

In case of joint focal points for scope (b), a representative of any of the focal point entities for scope (b) can make the submission through the electronic interface. 

When a focal point that is not a project participant is added to represent the project participants for any or for all scopes of authority, the submitter shall also upload in the electronic interface scanned written evidence of:         

(a) The new focal point’s corporate identity, and

(b) The personal identity and employment status of the new focal point’s authorised signatory(ies), including their specimen signature(s).

Such evidence may be provided in any of the following ways:

  • A notarised power of attorney confirming the authority of the new focal point representative to act on behalf of the entity. The power of attorney should also include the signature of the new focal point representative for verification purposes or, alternatively, a copy of his/her current passport/national ID should be submitted;
  • A notarised or verifiable national company registry certificate which authorises the new focal point representative and a copy of his/her current passport/national ID;
  • A notarised or verifiable resolution of the Board/Governing Body of the entity to include authorisation of the new focal point  together with a copy of his/her current passport/national ID.

All documents should be submitted in original language and accompanied by an official English translation. Should the presented documents not clearly identify the new focal point representative(s) and his/her specimen signature, the UNFCCC secretariat reserves the right to request additional clarifications and/or documentation.

Procedural Tips
  1. Focal points are requested to use the current version of the CDM-MOC-FORM and / or its Annexes by taking the following steps:
    Step 1: enter information in the electronic interface.
    Step 2: click on 'Create PDF' and print the form for signature.
    Step 3: scan the signed form and click on 'Choose File' to upload the signed, pdf form.

    Using the 'create pdf' function ensures that the latest version of the form is submitted.
  2. With the exception of Section 3: Statement of Agreement of the CDM-MOC-FORM, no handwritten submissions will be accepted.


    Add a project participant


The following documents are required to add a new entity as a project participant:

  • A Letter of Approval (LOA) from the DNA of a Party to the Kyoto Protocol which authorises the participation of the new entity.
  • If the addition is not associated with changes in the nomination of focal point entity(ies), Annex 2, Sections 1 and 2 of the CDM-MOC-FORM only is required.
  • If the addition does entail changes to the nomination of focal point entity(ies), a new CDM-MOC-FORM together with its Annex 2, Sections 1 and 2 are required.


All documents should be submitted through the dedicated electronic interface by a focal point (b) representative as per the current MOC statement.

The submitting focal point (b) representative should use their MOC registered e-mail account to log into the electronic interface. 

In case of joint focal points for scope (b), a representative of any of the focal point entities for scope (b) can make the submission through the electronic interface. 

The same procedure applies when an entity that is already a registered project participant would like to become a project participant under a different Annex I Party.

Annex 2 of the CDM-MOC-FORM should be signed by the focal point (b) only after a project participant(s) has signed on the respective form. This is to ensure that the focal point verifies and confirms any requested action from the project participant concerned prior to sending to CDM Registry for action. Any documentation received by the CDM Registry which is not dated sequentially correct may be rejected.

    Procedures related to holding accounts in the CDM Registry

        How do I apply to open a permanent holding account?

An application to open a permanent holding account should be submitted both electronically and in hard copy and should include the following documents:

  • CDM-RA-FORM available here;
  • Evidence of the current status of the entity (Certificate of Incorporation and/or letter of good standing in the case of registered companies) to be provided from a third party. The document should be notarized with a date not older than one year from date of submission to the secretariat; all applicable information should be highlighted for ease of reference.
  • Evidence that the individual signing 'Section 4: Declaration' of the application form has the authority to do so and to act on behalf of the entity concerned. The document should be submitted in the form of a power of attorney or certificate of the registrar of companies. All supporting documentation should be notarized and dated not older than one year from date of submission to the secretariat and applicable information should be highlighted for ease of reference.
  • Evidence of the identity of the individuals nominated as representatives of the account and the legal representative as identified in Sections 2, 3 and 4 of the CDM-RA-FORM (e.g. national identity cards/passports).

All documents should be submitted in original language and accompanied by an official English translation where applicable.

Each holding account will be associated with the Party which granted authorisation for their participation (Letter of Approval (LOA)).

The completed form, including attachments, should be submitted electronically to cdm-registry@unfccc.int and should be routed through or copied to the focal point for scope c) of the associated CDM project activity. The signed hard copy documentation should be sent to:

United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)
CDM Registry / SDM
Martin Luther King Strasse 8
D-53175 Bonn
Germany


        Who is eligible to apply for a ‘permanent’ holding account?

Entities authorised to participate in a CDM project activity by a Non-Annex 1 Party to the Kyoto Protocol may apply for a permanent holding account in the CDM Registry at the time of the first issuance of CERs from their project activity.


        Is it obligatory for Non-Annex 1 project participants to open a permanent holding account?

At time of issuance all CERs are transferred to the pending account of the CDM Registry and may be forwarded directly to a national registry account thereafter. It is therefore not mandatory for project participants to open a permanent holding account in the CDM Registry; such request is at the discretion of the project participants concerned.


        How do I request changes to a CDM Registry holding account

  • A request for changes to a CDM Registry holding account should be submitted by one of the existing account representatives or a legal representative of the account holding entity.
  • An existing account representative or a legal representative of an entity who wishes to update details of its holding account should contact the CDM Registry Team at cdm-registry@unfccc.int to obtain a copy of the CDM-RA-Change-FORM.


        Are there any costs associated with opening holding accounts in the CDM Registry?

There are no fees associated with opening holding accounts in the CDM Registry.


        How long can CERs remain in the pending account of the CDM Registry?

There is no specific time limit for CERs to remain in the pending account of the CDM Registry. However, it should be noted that there are no provisions allowing the carry-over of CERs held in the pending account in the CDM Registry.

CERs held in the pending account are forwarded to the holding accounts of project participants in accordance with the modalities of communication in place at the time of the request. Project participants should ensure the Share of Proceeds for administrative expenses (SOP Admin.) has been paid in full in order to be able to request the forwarding of CERs.


        How long can CERs remain in a Permanent Holding Account?

There is no specific time limit for CERs to remain in a Permanent Holding Account in the CDM Registry. However, it should be noted that there are no provisions allowing the carry-over of CERs which are held in Permanent Holding Accounts.


        To which accounts can CERs be forwarded to from the CDM Registry?

CERs held in either the pending account or a permanent holding account in the CDM Registry may only be forwarded to entities participating in the CDM project activity which originated the CERs; such entities should hold a Letter of Approval (LOA) from an Annex 1 country in the receiving national registry.

What is "forwarding" of CERs

"Forwarding" of CERs is a transaction type within the Kyoto accounting system specific to the CDM registry operations. As per decision 3/CMP.1, Appendix D, paragraph 6, the CDM registry "forwards" CERs to project participants (rather than "transfers" CERs).  This signifies the primary purpose of the CDM registry to issue and deliver CERs to project participants. CDM registry holding accounts cannot acquire externally CERs in contrast to holding accounts in Kyoto national registries.


        What is the procedure to transfer CERs from a Permanent Holding Account to an Annex 1 National Registry Account?

Account representatives are invited to contact the CDM Registry at cdm-registry@unfccc.int in order to obtain a forwarding request form from to forward CERs from a Permanent Holding Account. No hard copy of this forwarding request is required to be submitted to the secretariat.

        What is a Temporary Holding Account?

Temporary holding accounts for project participants with authorisations from an Annex I Parties have been phased out by the CDM Registry Administrator as of 2014.

 

    Procedures related to forwarding of CERs



        How do I forward CERs from the pending account of the CDM Registry to a holding account in a national registry?

  • At time of issuance of CERs an issuance notification message is circulated to focal point entities which includes information on any share of proceeds for administration payment (SOP) which may fall due.

  • The payment instructions for the SOP fee are included in the Issuance notification message sent to focal point entities at time of issuance.

  • Once the SOP fee has been paid the focal point receives a ‘Forwarding Instructions’ email including instructions on how to access the link to the CDM-FWD-FORM. If no SOP payment is required the ‘Forwarding Instructions' email is sent to focal points without delay.

  • Following receipt of the instruction the focal point for scope (a) may proceed to upload an electronic forwarding request for CERs by using the link contained in the issuance notification email mentioned above.

  • Once the electronic forwarding request has been completed and submitted, a scanned copy of the signed forwarding form should be sent to the secretariat at the following email address: cdm-registry@unfccc.int. Please include the Project or PoA number in the email subject line. The request should come from an email account of an authorized signatory of the focal point for scope (a) as per the modalities of communication for authentication purpose. In case of joint focal points for scope (a), the email can come from any of the authorized signatories and the joint focal point should be copied in the e-mail message.

  • Within 1 to 2 working days after receiving the scanned signed forwarding form, the secretariat may, on a sample basis, place a phone call to a focal point for scope (a) signatory to confirm the details of the requested transaction. An authorized signatory should be available on the phone and should be able to confirm the transaction details in English language. The e-mail message submitting the signed forwarding form may indicate available times and the names(s) of the signatory(ies) available to answer the call. The transaction may be processed after three unsuccessful attempts by the secretariat to reach the signatory(ies) on the phone.

  • The secretariat reserves the right to request the sending of the original form (hard copy) by mail if in doubt about the authenticity of the scanned form or if it had unsuccessfully attempted to contact the focal point for scope (a). In case the transaction is processed based on a scanned copy, the original form does not need to be sent.

  • Alternatively, the focal point for scope (a) may choose to directly mail a hard copy of the duly signed forwarding form to the following address of the secretariat for processing:  

United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)
CDM Registry / SDM
Martin Luther King Strasse 8
D-53175 Bonn
Germany

Please note that forms sent by mail should be with original signatures. Photocopied forms will be subject to phone authentication.


        How do I forward CERs from a Permanent Holding Account (PHA) in the CDM Registry to a National Registry account?

  • Any of the nominated account representatives of a Permanent Holding Account (PHA) may request the forwarding of CERs to a national registry account;
  • Due to the current unavailability of the CDM Registry electronic interface, account representatives are invited to contact the CDM Registry at cdm-registry@unfccc.int in order to obtain a forwarding request form to transfer CERs from a Permanent Holding Account.

        How long may electronically submitted CER forwarding requests remain pending in CDM Registry prior to rejection?

  • CER forwarding requests submitted electronically which are not supported by a signed CDM-FWD-FORM form received at the secretariat within 180 days of the original submission will be automatically rejected unless CDM Registry is requested by focal point entities to extend the validity period for a justified reason.

    Voluntary Cancellation


The procedure for implementing voluntary cancellation in the CDM Registry can be found here.

        How do I voluntarily cancel units (CERs. tCERs, lCERs) from the pending account of the CDM Registry?

  • At time of issuance of CERs an issuance notification message is circulated to focal point entities which includes information on any share of proceeds for administration payment (SOP) which may fall due.

  • The payment instructions for the SOP fee are included in the Issuance notification message sent to focal point entities at time of issuance.

  • Once the SOP fee has been paid the focal point receives a ‘Forwarding Instructions’ email including instructions on how to access the link to the CDM-FWD-FORM. If no SOP payment is required the ‘Forwarding Instructions" email is sent to focal points without delay.

  • Following receipt of the instruction the focal point for scope (a) may proceed to upload an electronic voluntary cancellation request for CERs by using the link contained in the issuance notification email mentioned above.

  • Once the electronic voluntary cancellation request has been completed and submitted, a scanned copy of the signed voluntary cancellation form should be sent to the secretariat at the following email address: cdm-registry@unfccc.int. Please include the project / PoA number in the email subject line. The request should come from an email account of an authorized signatory of the focal point for scope (a) as per the modalities of communication for authentication purpose. In case of joint focal points for scope (a), the email can come from any of the authorized signatories and the joint focal point should be copied in the e-mail message.

  • Within 1 to 2 working days after receiving the scanned signed voluntary cancellation form, the secretariat may, on a sample basis, place a phone call to a focal point for scope (a) signatory to confirm the details of the requested transaction. An authorized signatory should be available on the phone and should be able to confirm the transaction details in English language. The e-mail message submitting the signed voluntary cancellation form may indicate available times and the names(s) of the signatory(ies) available to answer the call.
