UDB launch postponed by two weeks - start from 15th January
UDB launch update from European Commission:
The Union Database application will be available to all successfully registered economic operators for transactions registration in the liquid fuels supply chainÂ (biofuels & bioliquids path) as from 15th January 2024.
Regarding the official start date of the UDB and following several requests from the stakeholders, we have decided to open the application on the 15th of January 2024 to allow for a smoother start and better support to the economic operators.
Initial stocks registration will be possible for the date of 1st January 2024 i.e. the stocks held as of beginning of 2024 by the certified Economic Operators. This feature will be available throughout the year 2024 for those Economic operators who may be onboarded in later part of 2024 to book the consignments as of 1st January 2024 provided they are certified as of this date. Economic operators should ensure that the amounts registered can be evidenced to the auditor during the audit.
Transactions can be registered retroactively from 1st January 2024 based on the initial stocks or transactions received from suppliers after 1st January 2024.

KZR INiG System announces the kick-off project the EU Database (UDB) for biofuels and bioliquids. In accordance with Article 28 (2) of Directive (EU) 2018/2001 - RED II. Member States require relevant traders to enter into this database information on the transactions carried out and the sustainability characteristics of these fuels, including GHG emissions over the entire life cycle of these fuels, from the place of production to the supplier placing the fuels on the market.
The obligation to use the UDB applies to EOs certified in the area of liquid and gaseous transport biofuels. Biomass and biogas for energy purposes are not covered by this obligation.
The role of KZR INiG is to smoothly implement all participants and certification bodies into the UDB. KZR INiG participates in meetings with the EC on an ongoing basis. We will keep you informed of all necessary activities in this regard.
The following schedule is planned:
Â 1. starting January 16, 2023, the ability to log voluntary systems into the UDB
Â 2. by February 28, 2023, implementation of certification bodies (CBs) and participants in the UDB
Â 3. during March 2023, EO shall register initial stocks before registering trades
Â 4. registration of transactions from April 3, 2023.
Due to the requirements and tight schedule of the UDB project, we ask for your active cooperation.
At the same time, due to the launch of the Union Database, we invite you to contact us about the transition to the electronic database - the platform of the KZR System BOK Module KZR urgently.
