The Australian National Registry of Emissions Units (ANREU) is a secure electronic system designed to accurately track the location and ownership of:
You (organisations or individuals) are required to have an ANREU account if:
- you have an emissions liability,
- you need to hold (own) or transact in (transfer, cancel, surrender, relinquish) ACCUs, carbon units or Kyoto units in Australia, or
- you are going to receive free carbon units under the Jobs and Competitiveness Program.
The Australian National Registry of Emissions Units Act 2011 (ANREU Act) and the Australian National Registry of Emissions Units Regulations 2011 (ANREU Regulations) provide the legislative support for the administration of ANREU and are consistent with the Kyoto Protocol rules.
