In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, amendments have been made to the
National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (Safeguard Mechanism) Rule 2015 in recognition of the widespread disruption that COVID-19 has caused for business operations. The amendments:
This follows another recent amendment to include prescribed production variables and default emissions intensities in Schedules 2 and 3 of the Safeguard Rule which means that applications can now use prescribed production variables and default emissions intensities.
National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007, all responsible emitters must report their emissions to the Clean Energy Regulator by 31 October each year.
For each financial year (the reporting year), the Clean Energy Regulator is required to publish information about all designated large facilities with emissions over 100,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2-e), as outlined in the
National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (Safeguard Mechanism) Rule 2015.
For each facility covered by the safeguard mechanism in a reporting year, information published includes the baseline emissions number in force for that year, total reported emissions, the responsible emitter(s) for each facility, and any Australian carbon credit units surrendered.
This information is published after the 1 March compliance deadline.
