The article addresses the need for European Union countries, particularly Great Britain, to be prepared with the Phase 2 of the European Union's Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) as its first year finishes on March 31, 2006. The need for a verified emissions report on the EU ETS to be received by the British registry by March 31 is cited. Comparison on the reductions in the National Allocation Plans between Phase 2 and Phase 1 is the concern of issues in Phase 2. Actions to be made by the British government regarding EU ETS is one of the concerns of companies that are specific to Great Britain.
