Full text
6.7. An emitter referred to in section 6.6 who communicates a notice of correction for the emitter’s emissions report in accordance with section 6.5 must include a verification report where any of the following relative importance thresholds is reached:
(1)  where errors or omissions, calculated using the equation below, represent 5% or more of the total emissions of the establishment referred to in the first paragraph of section 6.1 or the enterprise referred to in the second or third paragraph of section 6.1 or correspond to emissions equal to or greater than 25,000 metric tons CO2 equivalent:
Where:
PE = Percentage of error;
SEO = Sum of CO2 equivalent greenhouse gas emissions erroneously calculated or omitted, in metric tons;
TER = Total greenhouse gas emissions initially reported and referred to in subparagraph 2.3 of the first paragraph of section 6.2, in metric tons CO2 equivalent;
(2)  where errors or omissions in the total annual quantity of benchmark units declared in accordance with subparagraph a of subparagraph 8 of the first paragraph of section 6.2, calculated using the equation below, represent 0.1% or more:
Where:
PE = Percentage of error;
BUEO = Quantity of benchmark units erroneously calculated or omitted, on the basis of the benchmark unit used;
BUD = Quantity of benchmark units initially declared, on the basis of the benchmark unit used.
Where the errors or omissions calculated in accordance with subparagraphs 1 and 2 of the first paragraph are less than the relative importance threshold provided for by those subparagraphs, the emitter must provide an attestation to that effect.

6.7. An emitter referred to in section 6.6 who communicates a notice of correction for the emitter’s emissions report in accordance with section 6.5 must include a verification report where any of the following relative importance thresholds is reached:
(1)  where errors or omissions, calculated using the equation below, represent 5% or more of the total emissions of the establishment or correspond to emissions equal to or greater than 25,000 metric tons CO2 equivalent:
Where:
PE = Percentage of error;
SEO = Sum of CO2 equivalent greenhouse gas emissions erroneously calculated or omitted, in metric tons;
TER = Total greenhouse gas emissions initially reported and referred to in subparagraph 2.3 of the first paragraph of section 6.2, in metric tons CO2 equivalent;
(2)  where errors or omissions in the total annual quantity of benchmark units declared in accordance with subparagraph a of subparagraph 8 of the first paragraph of section 6.2, calculated using the equation below, represent 0.1% or more:
Where:
PE = Percentage of error;
BUEO = Quantity of benchmark units erroneously calculated or omitted, on the basis of the benchmark unit used;
BUD = Quantity of benchmark units initially declared, on the basis of the benchmark unit used.
Where the errors or omissions calculated in accordance with subparagraphs 1 and 2 of the first paragraph are less than the relative importance threshold provided for by those subparagraphs, the emitter must provide an attestation to that effect.

6.7. An emitter referred to in section 6.6 who communicates a notice of correction for the emitter’s emissions report in accordance with section 6.5 must include a verification report in cases where errors or omissions, calculated using the equation below, represent 5% or more of the total emissions of the establishment or correspond to emissions equal to or greater than 25,000 metric tons CO2 equivalent:
Where:
PE = Percentage of error;
SEO = Sum of CO2 equivalent greenhouse gas emissions erroneously calculated or omitted, in metric tons;
TER = Total CO2 equivalent greenhouse gas emissions initially reported.
When the errors or omissions calculated using the equation in the first paragraph represent less than 5% of total emissions from the establishment and correspond to emissions under 25,000 metric tons CO2 equivalent, the emitter must provide an attestation to that effect.
M.O. 2010-12-06, s. 8; M.O. 2012-12-11, s. 12; M.O. 2012-12-11, s. 12.
6.7. A revised emissions report referred to in section 6.5 must include a verification report completed in accordance with this Regulation where
(1)  the emissions initially reported were equal to or greater than 25,000 metric tons CO2 equivalent and where the errors or omissions represented over 5% of those emissions based on the following equation:
Where:
PE = Percentage of error;
SEO = Sum of CO2 equivalent emissions erroneously calculated or omitted, in metric tons;
TER = Total CO2 equivalent emissions initially reported, in metric tons; or
(2)  after correction of the errors or omissions, the total greenhouse gas emissions are equal to or greater than 25,000 metric tons CO2 equivalent.
In the case referred to in subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph, the verification report for the emissions report must also cover the initial emissions report.
