Reminder notice: Deadline for renewal of project 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” incorporating this revision entered into force on 1 January 2019 (the document is available here: With regard to the project activities with renewable crediting period that expired before or on 31 December 2018 (i.e. “overdue cases”), in accordance with the Board’s decision at the same meeting, the deadline for the submission of renewal requests is set as 31 December 2019. (This information was previously communicated to all project participants by email in late 2018 and in early 2019).
