Legal basis

An Act on Monitoring of Greenhouse Gases came into effect in December 2005.

This Act determines the establishment of a National System for monitoring of greenhouse gases and empowers the Minister of Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment (VROM) to appoint an authority responsible for the National System and the National Inventory.

The Act also determines that the National Inventory be based on methodologies and processes as laid down in the monitoring protocols. As follow-up to this the Minister has, by regulation, appointed SenterNovem as 'single national entity' (NIE = National Inventory Entity) and has published a list of the protocols. Adjustments to the protocols will require official publication of the new protocols and announcement of publication in the official Government Gazette (Staatscourant).
