To facilitate a process for Annex I Parties to officially submit their annual inventory submissions under the
Convention and supplementary information required under Article 7, paragraph 1, of the Kyoto Protocol, and
national communications, the UNFCCC secretariat has created a simple and user-friendly web-based interface
called the "UNFCCC Submission Portal". The portal allows Annex I Parties to easily and securely
upload the required submissions. The portal also allows Parties to view the status of the submissions made
using the system.
Integrated with the secretariat's internal processes for receiving and processing submissions, the system
will progressively replace the various submission channels used in the past.
The UNFCCC Submission Portal is available to Annex I Parties and fully operational as of 16 February 2009.
Questions relating to the use of the submission portal should be addressed to: GHGINVAI@unfccc.int .
