As one of the components of IPCC new research cycle, refinements to existing IPCC 2006 Guidelines for national GHG inventory has been initiated formally. The outcomes which would be used in conjunction with IPCC 2006 Guidelines, will be approved and published in 2019, facilitating the implantations of Paris Agreement which is applicable to all. There are three types of refinements, update, elaboration or new guidance, covering all volumes, namely, General part, Energy activities, Industrial process, AFOLU and Waste. Twelve experts from China are involved in. Recommend Chinese researchers publish the relevant research outs in qualified journals in English as soon as possible in order to improve the quotation rate of China’ research. Since China has own the capacity to follow the latest guidelines, this paper also recommends the national inventory team shift to IPCC 2006 Guidelines and its refinements completely in future GHG inventory compiling.

Key words: IPCC, National GHG inventory, Guidelines, Refinements
