The Netherlands is in the process of implementing the EU emission trading directive. Amended environmental bill has been sent to Parliament. Most of the workload is dedicated to the draft of the national allocation plan. The Netherlands aim to base allocation of allowances on historic emissions, sectoral production forecasts and early actions, identified and calculated through Benchmarking. Final draft of the plan will be sent to the European Commission in April 2004.
