Introduction to the Review Process

Background 

At the twenty-fifth session of the Executive Body for the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (Geneva 10 to 13 December 2007), the Executive Body approved methods and procedures for the review of national emission inventories, as outlined in the document Methods and procedures for the technical review of air pollutant emission inventories reported under the Convention and its protocols, EB.AIR/GE.1/2007/16 (  English French and  Russian).   

Main objective

The technical review of national inventories checks and assesses Parties' data submissions with a view to improve the quality of emission data and associated information reported to the Convention. The review also seeks to achieve a common approach to prioritising and monitoring inventory improvements under the Convention with those of other organisations with similar interests such as the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the European Union National Emission Ceilings  (NEC) Directive and the  European Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (E-PRTR).
