2 Page 2 I. Introduction A. Background 1. The Executive Board of the clean development mechanism (CDM) (hereinafter referred to as the Board) adopted at its sixty fifth meeting the Clean development mechanism project standard (hereinafter referred to as the Project standard) along with other regulatory documents as deliverables of objective 3 ( Clarification, consolidation and enhancement of the consistencies of all the existing regulatory decisions of the board that relate to validation and verification of project activities ) of the CDM management plan The Project standard contains requirements for project participants to comply with in designing as well as in implementing any type of CDM project activities and programme of activities (PoA) and monitoring greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions by sources or GHG removals by sinks. 3. The Project standard requires project participants to prepare a project design document (PDD) for the proposed CDM project activity (hereinafter referred to as the project activity) by completing a PDD form (F-CDM-CCS-PDD) and providing all necessary information and documentation to demonstrate compliance of the project activity with all applicable CDM rules and requirements. B. Objectives 4. The objectives of the Guidelines for completing the project design document form for carbon capture and storage CDM project activities (hereinafter referred to as these guidelines) are to: Assist project participants in completing the Project design document form for carbon capture and storage CDM project activities (F-CDM-CCS-PDD) for their project activities; Improve the quality and consistency of PDDs prepared by project participants and submitted in the CDM project cycle. II. Scope and applicability 5. These guidelines and the related F-CDM-CCS-PDD, are only applicable to CDM carbon capture and storage (CCS) project activities. Separate guidelines and forms are applicable to large-scale project activities, small-scale project activities, A/R project activities, small-scale A/R project activities and PoAs. 6. These guidelines contain recommendations for project participants on how to complete F-CDM-CCS-PDD. 7. If project participants wish to propose a new baseline and monitoring methodology(ies) for a CDM CCS project activity, they are required to complete the form Proposed new baseline and monitoring methodologies for CCS in accordance with the applicable guidelines and submit it, together with an F-CDM-CCS-PDD with sections A-C completed, in accordance with applicable procedure for the submission and consideration of a proposed new baseline and monitoring methodology.
3 Page 3 III. Terms and definitions 8. In addition to the definitions contained in Glossary of CDM Terms, the following terms are used in these guidelines: Should is used to indicate that among several possibilities, one course of action is recommended as particularly suitable; May is used to indicate what is permitted. IV. General guidelines 9. When designing a project activity and completing the F-CDM-CCS-PDD, in addition to applying the Project standard and selected approved CCS baseline and monitoring methodology(ies) (hereinafter referred to as the selected methodology(ies)), project participants should also consult the Rules and References section of the UNFCCC CDM website < This section contains all regulatory documents for the CDM, such as standards (including methodologies and tools), procedures, guidelines, clarifications, forms and the Glossary of CDM terms. 10. In cases where the Project standard requires project participants to document in a revised PDD changes occurred to the project activity after its registration, in accordance with applicable provisions related to post registration changes, the changes should be documented in all relevant sections of the F-CDM-CCS-PDD in the following manner: In cases where the changes involve corrections of inaccurate project information or parameters, or where the project activity was never implemented in accordance with the description in the registered PDD the original information may be overwritten with the correct information; In cases where the changes occur after the project activity was implemented in accordance with the description in the registered PDD (including changes that have not yet occurred) the original information should be retained and changes should be documented with additional text to the original information, clearly indicating the changes. 11. In addition to the provisions in paragraph 10 above, project participants should provide a summary of the changes, including the reasons for the changes and any additional information relating to the changes, in Appendix 7 of the F-CDM-CCS-PDD. 12. Where a PDD contains information that the project participants wish to be treated as confidential/proprietary, project participants are required to submit documentation in two versions: One version where all parts containing confidential/proprietary information are made illegible (e.g. by covering those parts with black ink) so that the version can be made publicly available without displaying confidential/proprietary information; A second version containing all information that is to be treated as strictly confidential/proprietary by all parties handling this documentation (designated operational entities (DOEs) and applicant entities (AEs), Board members and alternate members; panel/committee and working group members, external experts requested to consider such documents in support of work for the Board; the secretariat). 13. Information used to: demonstrate additionality; describe the application of a selected methodology(ies); and (c) support the environmental and socio-economic impact assessment; is not be
4 Page 4 considered proprietary or confidential. Any data, values and formulae included in electronic spreadsheets provided must be accessible and verifiable. 14. The F-CDM-CCS-PDD must be completed in English, and all attached documents must be in English or contain a full translation of relevant sections into English. 15. The F-CDM-CCS-PDD must be completed using the same format without modifying its font, headings or logo, and without any other alteration to the form. 16. Tables and their columns in the F-CDM-CCS-PDD may not be modified or deleted, but rows may be added, as needed. Additional appendices may be added. 17. If a section of the F-CDM-CCS-PDD is not applicable, it must be explicitly stated that the section is left blank intentionally. 18. The format used for presentation of values in the F-CDM-CCS-PDD, should be an internationally recognized format, for example digits grouping should be done in thousands and a decimal point should be marked with a dot (.), not with a comma (,).
