The first step in the retirement process is to select the quantity of units to be retired. This can be done either by entering tonnes of SAF or tonnes of CO2 equivalent:

The second step is to select the intended year to claim the emissions reductions. Note that this date cannot be after the validity period of the unit.

If the retirement is by an air transport provider, they will be required to select if the emissions reductions will be claimed for international or domestic flights. If the retirement is by a logistics provider or corporate end-user of aviation services, they will be required to designate an air transport provider beneficiary. This can either be a company with an account in the registry, or a company without an account in the registry.

The last step is to designate a beneficiary for the retirement of the SAFcE (representing Scope 3 emission reduction claims). It can be the company that initiated the retirement, in which case "my company" should be selected; or a third party, in which case their name and email address will need to be provided.

After checking that all the information provided is accurate, you can complete the process by clicking the "next" button.

  1. It is required for retirement of usability tier 1 SAFcA to select the applicable compliance scheme.

  2. During retirement of usability tier 2 SAFcA, the associated SAFcE beneficiary may be designated.

  3. If a SAFcE beneficiary is designated during the retirement of usability tier 2 SAFcA, the registry automatically generates and retires the associated SAFcE. If no beneficiary is designated, the SAFcE will be generated and can be retired at a later time.

  4. If it is a usability tier 3 SAFcA that is being retired, the associated SAFcE will automatically be converted from usability tier 2 to usability tier 3.

  5. If the SAFcA being retired is of sustainability tiers A or B, the registry will display a message that sustainability tiers A and B SAFcA should not be claimed against compliance obligations.
