CORSIA to ASEAN Countries - Remote Training Week for NAB’s GHG Assessors
An intensive week early August spread over 3 continents (US-EUR-SEA) and provided a first row of 5 training days for all ASEAN NAB GHG assessors under the EU-SEA CCCA CORSIA project, in 4 groups as per countries specific requirements:
day 1 / group 1 - Malaysia, Philippines, Vietnam
day 2 / group 1 - Malaysia, Philippines, Vietnam
day 3 / group 2 - Thailand
day 4 / group 2 - Thailand
day 5 / group 3 - Indonesia, Singapore
day 6 / group 4 - Brunei, Cambodia, Lao, Myanmar (09th/ 10th November)
day 7 / group 4 - Brunei, Cambodia, Lao, Myanmar (09th/ 10th November)
With concrete and real-life examples, it was tangibly explained how to conduct ISO GHG 14065 audits and CORSIA witness audits through remote solutions while guaranteeing the compliance with the specific scheme requirements in terms of verification process, internal procedures of the verifier, legal structure and responsibilities. NAB’s were supported in continuing their work and engagement towards CORSIA, providing them with recommendation, tips and success stories on how other NAB managed to finalise their auditing exercise while respecting the movement restrictions and social distancing limitations.
With over 70 participants we’re pleased to have seen a very motivated and engaged audience, the event formats and sizes allowed an iterative exchange of experiences and questions to address and consider all parties requirements and needs.
The row of seminars closes with group 4 in November and is accompanied by additional trainings covering CORSIA SARPs ANNEX16, Vol IV and ETM Doc 9501 in October and December.

Regional 3-day Online Workshop on CORSIA Offsetting with 10 ASEAN Countries
The first out of 3 main regional workshops under the EU-SEA CCCA CORSIA project successfully took off last week.
A vivid and active community of > 200 participants on day one and only slightly less on both following days with representatives from all 10 participating project countries (Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam ) and CORSIA actors (State Authorities, Aeroplane Operators, National Accreditation Bodies and accredited VB’s ) showed a steady and growing interest in CORSIA.
The event was aiming to help strengthening the readiness towards offsetting requirements in the new CORSIA period, 01.01.2021 - 31.12.2023, addressing the following aspects:
main MRV (Monitoring, Reporting and Verification) principles, schedules and deadlines for each CORSIA involved party;
main offsetting principles, its meaning, related consequences and specific impacts for State Authorities, Aeroplane Operators, National Accreditation Bodies and accredited VB’s over the short and distant time ahead: 2021-23, 2025, 2028 and 2031;
ICAO documents: 1.) “CORSIA Emissions unit eligibility criteria” and 2.) “CORSIA Eligible emissions units” affecting the ASEAN region with particular focus on programme eligibility timeframe, eligible unit date and scope of eligibility.
The first 2 workshop modules /day 1+2 focused on overall subjects such as CORSIA baseline, offsetting, specific technicalities to be considered and eligible fuels. Module 3 /day 3 covered the Central Registry, “eligible registries”, the roadmap and ICAO deadlines for each actor being part of CORSIA. Specific topics: ICAO, CORSIA BASELINE PERIOD AND CORSIA OFFSETTING, ICAO SARPs ANNEX 16, VOLUME 4, Chapter 3, Chapter 4; ICAO doc 9501; emissions unit eligibility criteria; CORSIA eligible emissions units: project and programmes approved by ICAO Council to supply CORSIA eligible units; Cancel Emissions Unit Programme and REGISTRY: a tool to avoid double counting; CORSIA eligible fuels and their role in reducing offsetting obligations
The webinar intended to show the detailed chain of interaction between the CORSIA actors, how offsetting is affecting yearly reporting duties when their role is crucial during the compliance period and what to do within the three years to allow the SA’s to report to ICAO the required information on emissions unit cancellation for the 2021/2023 period by the deadline (31.07.2025).
The next Regional Workshops will look at Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) and Mitigation Actions - stay tuned!

Workshop on new ISO 14065:2013 standard for ASEAN Consultative Committee for Standard and Quality (ACCSQ) Working group (WG) 2
The main objective of the workshop in the context of the cooperation with ASEAN countries, was to provide a training and guidance on the implementation of the new ISO 14065:2013 standard and accreditation program to the national accreditation bodies of the 10 ASEAN countries, suitable for offering a CORSIA scope of accreditation to candidate verification bodies.

Magnitute check control for ASEAN States Authorities Workshop
This 2nd Workshop was organized with the main objective to provide further support to the Aeroplane Operators (AOs) in the ASEAN region in the aim to facilitate the reporting process and to support State Authorities that are obliged to verify the emission reports submitted by their AOs and already verified by the VBs starting as of 1st of June 2020.
The aim of the workshop was to support all CORSIA actors in meeting the requirements and complying with the deadline 31st August 2020 to submit the reports to ICAO.
07 - 08 November 2019
Emission Reporting Training
The main objective of this 2- day workshop was to support and increase the capacity of State Authorities (SAs) and Aeroplane Operators (AOs) from the ASEAN region in filling and managing Emissions Reports (ERs) so that they are able to comply with ICAO CORSIA deadlines. In particular, this workshop allowed participants to gain in-depth knowledge of the basic ER principles using a learning-by-doing approach to understand the ER excel forms.
