Reminder notice: Deadline for renewal of crediting period

The CDM Executive Board at its 100th meeting decided (EB 100 meeting report, paragraph 32) to revise the process for renewal of crediting period, introducing a deadline for the submission of a request for renewal of crediting period (i.e. one year after the expiry of the crediting period). Missing the deadline would make the requesting for renewal not possible.

Version 02.0 of the “CDM project cycle procedure for project activities” and the "CDM project cycle procedure for programme of activitities" incorporating this revision entered into force on 1 January 2019 (the documents are available here:

With regard to the project activities and component project activities (CPAs) under programmes of activities with renewable crediting period that expired before or on 30 September 2019 (i.e. “overdue cases”), in accordance with the Board’s decision at EB 105, the deadline for the submission of renewal requests is set as 30 September 2020. For CPAs, please note that crediting period may only be renewed if the relevant programme of activities period has been renewed.

(The information above was communicated to all project participants, focal points and coordinating/managing entities by email in 2018, 2019 and in January 2020.)
