19.1. Where, on 1 August following the end of a compliance period, the verification report on the emissions report for 1 or more years of that compliance period does not allow to confirm in whole or in part the quantities of GHG emissions reported in accordance with the Regulation respecting mandatory reporting of certain emissions of contaminants into the atmosphere (chapter Q-2, r. 15) and the relative importance threshold referred to in subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph of section 6.7 of that Regulation is reached, the emitter is required for those years to cover the increased quantity of GHG emissions as follows:
Total increased quantity of GHG emissions = total GHG emissions reported × (1+ RUGHG)
RUGHG = Relative uncertainty of GHG emissions reported, calculated in accordance with paragraph 7.5 of section 6.9 of the Regulation respecting mandatory reporting of certain emissions of contaminants into the atmosphere.
Even if the emitter submits a verification report confirming compliance of the emissions report with the Regulation respecting mandatory reporting of certain emissions of contaminants into the atmosphere after the date provided for in the first paragraph, the emission allowances corresponding to the difference between the total increased quantity of GHG emissions and the total quantity of GHG emissions verified once again may not be recovered.
