How to submit a new Standardized Baseline
Parties, project participants, international industry organizations or admitted observer organizations may propose a standardized baseline through the DNA of a Party for which the standardized baseline is proposed.
The DNA submitting the proposed standardized baseline shall submit to the UNFCCC via firstname.lastname@example.org the following:
(a) The duly completed “Proposed standardized baseline submission form” (CDM-PSB-FORM) ;
(b) All additional documentation supporting the submission (e.g. relevant data and documents including a quality control report, statistics, studies, etc.), where applicable. Data used to establish the proposed standardized baseline shall be provided in one of the following sector-specific data templates:
(i) A sector-specific data template published by the secretariat on the UNFCCC CDM website in accordance with the modalities in appendix 1 of the Procedure. If no applicable data template is available on the UNFCCC CDM website at the time of the DNA’s submission, the proponent may submit a new data template or request a revision or clarification of the published data template in accordance with the modalities in appendix 1 of the Procedure;
(ii) A sector-specific data template prepared in accordance with an approved methodology or methodological tool, if the proposed standardized baseline is developed using the approved methodology or methodological tool;
(c) An assessment report prepared by a designated operational entity (DOE) contracted by either the DNA or any other entity under the agreement with the DNA. The DNA may omit the submission of the assessment report up to three times under the following conditions:
(i) If the DNA is of a Party that had 10 or fewer registered CDM project activities as at 31 December 2010, or represents a group of Parties, each of which had 10 or fewer registered CDM project activities as at 31 December 2010 (The list of these countries is found here); and
(ii) If the DNA decided not to apply for funding from the secretariat for the DOE to prepare the assessment report in accordance with the modalities described in appendix 2 of the Procedure. The assessment report shall include the DOE’s positive assessment opinion on the compliance of: (i) the quality assurance and quality control system with the provisions and data quality objectives of the “Guidelines for quality assurance and quality control of data in the establishment of standardized baselines”; (ii) the proposed standardized baseline with the approach or combination of approaches or deviation from the approach(es) used to develop it;
(d) Letters of approval on the proposed updated standardized baseline from all the DNAs of the Parties where it applies to a group of Parties.
