Update on transitional measure: EU ETS registry of Denmark to resume operations on 4 April

The national emissions registry of Denmark will resume normal operations on 4 April 2011 at 8am CET.
This decision follows completion by the Commission of its review of the report from Danish national registry on the adequacy of its security measures. With this report, Denmark has given reasonable assurances that the minimum security requirements are in place.
This will bring to 24 the number of registries that will have resumed normal operations following the suspension from 19 January 2011 of transactions, except for the allocation and surrender of allowances, in all EU ETS national registries due to cases of cyber theft.
The Commission will continue to provide updates on the situation and will announce the planned re-activation of each national registry 24 hours in advance.

(The announcement is available here.)
