Public information in emissions trading
Information on emissions trading is publicly available. This includes information on the allocation and compliance of operators in the EU ETS, which organisations are account holders and annual aggregates of the number of Kyoto units in the Swedish part of the registry.
Information about account representatives, account balances and transaction information are published only on account type level as detailed information is confidential under EU legislation and the Swedish Publicity and Privacy Act.
Article 80.1 of the Registry Regulation 2019/1122 states that:
All information, including the holdings of all accounts, all transactions made, the unique unit identification code of the allowances held or affected by a transaction, held in the EUTL and the Union Registry shall be considered confidential except as otherwise required by Union law, or by provisions of national law that pursue a legitimate objective compatible with this Regulation and are proportionate.
Section 11 of the Public Access and Secrecy Act states that:
Confidentiality applies to activities relating to the management of the emission registry under the legal act (2004:1199) on emissions trading for purposes of providing or contributing disclosure of the status of an account in the registry unless it is clear that the information can be disclosed without the account holder suffering damage.
Public information as decided under the Kyoto Protocol
Data from the Swedish registry is published in accordance with the provisions of the Registry Regulation and Decision 13/ MP.1 of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol.

Searchable information within the EU ETS
Information from the EU ETS is published by the European Union Transaction Log, EUTL.
You can use the EUTL database to find information about, among other things, transfers, allocation, surrender and account holders.
According to the Registry Regulation, on 15 May each year the EU Member States must publish data on how the operators have fulfilled their obligations within the emissions trading system.
Here you can see the compliance table which shows whether the allowances surrendered by operators correspond to the verified emissions during the trading period:
