The above table is formulated under the following reservations:


(1) The volumes do not yet include allowances to be auctioned for the Member States of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) that are members of the European Economic Area (EEA). These allowances total 8,422,182 for 2013 and 8,827,000 for 2014. The EEA-EFTA States intend to make use of the transitional common auction platform and the Commission is currently discussing the arrangements with them. It is not yet clear when the transitional common auction platform will start to auction allowances for the EEA-EFTA States. 

(2) The above calendars do not take into account the Commission's draft amendment of the Auctioning Regulation for 'back-loading' a significant volume of allowances, which will affect the figures for individual years, including 2014. The calendars will be modified accordingly for the remainder of the year following adoption of this draft amendment.


(3) In 2014, pursuant to Article 10c of the ETS Directive, seven new Member States intend to allocate a total of 129,505,064 allowances to certain electricity generators free of charge. This volume has been deducted from the volume of allowances to be auctioned.
