The case arose with respect to Bulgaria’s 2009 annual submission that was not compliant with the UNFCCC reporting guidelines, the IPCC good practice guidance and the IPCC good practice guidance for LULUCF. The institutional arrangements and technical competence appeared to be insufficient. Consequently, it was found that the Bulgarian national system did not operate fully in accordance with the general and specific functions as set out in the guidelines for national systems. On 28 June 2010, the enforcement branch determined that Bulgaria was not in compliance with the guidelines for national systems and consequently not eligible to participate in the transfer and sale of emission credits. In August 2010 and October 2010, Bulgaria submitted revised plans of implementation and updated reports. On 4 February 2011, the branch decided that there no longer continued to be a question of implementation with respect to Bulgaria's eligibility and reinstated Bulgaria’s eligibility eligible to participate in the mechanisms under articles 6, 12 and 17 of the Protocol.
