About Swiss ETS (and who’s affected)

1 July 2017, the Swiss Federal Council entered into force Ordinance to institute and emission trading scheme for Switzerland. Swiss ETS for aviation is a mandatory regulation for specific operators to track flights between Switzerland – European Economic Area (EEA) and Intra-Switzerland.

Specifically, operators with 1,000+ T/CO2 (Full Scope) for EU-ETS in 2016 are required to comply with Swiss ETS beginning 1 January 2018. 2018 Swiss TKM Compliance requires operators submit a Monitoring Plan, track distance / payload, and compile an annual report of applicable flights. TKM Monitoring Plans were due 30 September 2017 and TKM Reports are due 31 March 2019.
