Transaction delay

For security reasons, a number of transactions in the Danish EU ETS Registry and the Danish Kyoto Registry are usually covered by transaction delay. However, the transaction delay differs depending on the type of the transaction. 
Read more about the different transaction delay here below.

Transactions delay in the EU ETS registry

Trusted transactions (transactions to accounts listed on the trusted account list)

Be aware that trusted transactions, executed by one account representative cannot be stopped.
Trusted transactions involving two account representatives cannot be stopped after it has been approved by the second account representative.

See further details in the table here below:

Transaction is approvedTransaction is executed in the registry
Work days before 10amAt 10am the same day 
Work days 10am-4pmExecuted immediately
Work days after 4pmAt 10am the first coming work day
 Weekends and holidaysAt 10am the first coming work day

 

Direct transactions (transactions to accounts not on the trusted account list)

Direct transactions are always covered by transaction delay.

Account representatives can stop a direct transaction up to two hours before the transaction would be executed in the registry. Thereafter, the transaction cannot be stopped by account representatives. In critical situations, account representatives or account holders can contact the Danish Emission Trading Registry team and request them to cancel the transaction. The Danish Emission Trading Registry team is able to cancel direct transaction up to the time of execution in the registry.

Transaction delay in the Kyoto registry

For security reasons, transactions in Danish Kyoto Registry are covered by a 26-hour transaction delay.

The transaction delay is a security measure. Once a transaction has been initiated (see Carrying out transactions), the 26-hour transaction delay begins to count down. As transactions may only be initiated Monday–Friday between 10 am and 4 pm, the transaction delay will expire and enable the transaction to be implemented Monday–Friday between 12 noon and 6 pm. The transaction delay cannot expire on a Saturday or a Sunday or on the national public holidays. This means that the transaction-delay process will be suspended on the following days between 0 am and 12 midnight:

Transaction delay to and from Swiss accounts
