Technical review of submitted adjustments
The technical review of new adjustment applications is desk review conducted by a team of expert reviewers. A lead reviewer co-ordinates the work of the team to ensure that a consistent approach is taken across all Parties/ pollutants/ source categories.
CEIP supports the reviewers by managing the review process overall, including the provision of Party information to the reviewers. CEIP also acts as an intermediary between the Party and the reviews should there be points which require clarification during the review.
Approved adjustments if reported in requested Annex VII are compared in developed on-line tool and checked by ERT as needed.
