Welcome to the JI Rulebook

Current to JISC 23

The JI Rulebook is the definitive online database of the Joint Implementation (JI) rules.  It has been developed by Baker & McKenzie with funding from the New Zealand Ministry for the Environment.

We recommend that users new to the JI begin with the annotated Article 6 section. Experienced users can navigate directly to the relevant section, using the flowchart to the right, the tabs above, or the search function.  The site will be updated after each Joint Implementation Supervisory Committee (JISC) meeting, and the currency of the site is indicated in the top menu bar ("Current to JISC XX").

Please note that there are no hard copy versions of the JI Rulebook and there is no 'print all' function on the site.  This is both for environmental reasons (to discourage the unnecessary use of paper, since when printed the site is several hundred pages long) and for currency reasons (the site will be updated after each JISC meeting, so a hard copy version would quickly become out of date).
