This report provides a summary of the assessment of the EU Member States’ (MS) submission of greenhouse gas projections under Article 14 of the Monitoring Mechanism Regulation (MMR) and its Implementing Regulation in 2017. It aims at describing the main results of the Quality Assurance and Quality Control procedure as carried out by the European Topic Centre for air pollution and climate change mitigation in order to provide more transparency on the quality of the reported information under Art. 14 of the MMR. This includes the identification of progress and improvements made by the MS since the last mandatory reporting year (2015), and an outlook for the main challenges for future reporting.
