6.3. The quantities of greenhouse gas emissions reported under the first paragraph of section 6.2 must be calculated using the protocols prescribed in Schedule A.2 corresponding to the type of enterprise, facility or establishment operated and, where applicable, the type of activity pursued and the process or equipment used.
Notwithstanding the first paragraph, an emitter may use one of the calculation or assessment methods referred to in the second paragraph of section 6
(1) to calculate the greenhouse gas emissions of one or more sources of emissions when the emissions attributable to them represent, cumulatively, not more than 3% of the emissions from the establishment in CO2 equivalent, up to a maximum of 20,000 metric tons CO2 equivalent where the emissions from the establishment are, in the case of an emitter not referred to in section 6.6, the greenhouse gas emissions referred to in subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph of section 6.2, and in the case of an emitter referred to in section 6.6, the greenhouse gas emissions referred to in subparagraph 2.3 of the first paragraph of section 6.2.
(2) if no protocol is prescribed in Schedule A.2 for the type of enterprise, facility or establishment operated, for the type of activity pursued, for the type of process or equipment used or for the type of greenhouse gas emitted.
The emitter must use the same calculation method and perform 100% of the data sampling and measurement in accordance with that method for each report year. However, as soon as an emitter’s situation no longer corresponds to one of the cases referred to in the second paragraph, the emitter must change the calculation method for the protocols referred to in the first paragraph.
Notwithstanding the second and third paragraphs, when the emitter’s enterprise, facility or establishment is equipped with a continuous emission monitoring and recording system to measure the parameters needed to calculate greenhouse gas emissions or when such a system is installed during their operation, the emitter must used use the calculation methods applicable to that system.
