Bringing forward EU Emissions Trading System 2018 Compliance Deadlines in the UK

Closes 24 Nov 2017

Opened 6 Nov 2017

Overview

The purpose of this consultation is to seek views on a proposal to bring forward the reporting and surrender compliance deadlines for UK regulated EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) participants for the 2018 compliance year to before 29 March 2019. Following the consultation the UK Government proposes to enact this into law by amending the 2012 Greenhouse Gas Regulations, so that they have effect from 1 January 2018.

The context and reasons for these changes, as well as a draft of the proposed statutory instrument, are set out in the consultation document attached below. They are also available on GOV.UK.

Please provide responses to the consultation questions through this Citizenspace online survey.

We welcome responses from any organisation or individual but this consultation will be of particular interest to all UK-regulated EU ETS operators with obligations to comply in the power, aviation and industrial sectors.

This consultation runs for three weeks until 24 November 2017. Please note that any responses received after the closing date may not be considered.

The measures proposed in this consultation are without prejudice to future decisions on the UK’s future relationship with the EU on the EU ETS.
