Sequestration guidance

For comment: proposed amendments and guidance

On 23 August 2018, the Department of the Environment and Energy released proposed amendments to the Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative) Rule 2015 relating to native vegetation regeneration projects for public consultation until 5pm (AEST), 13 September 2018. The proposed amendments are supported by documentasset::technical guidance, that has been co-designed between the Clean Energy Regulator and industry partners, also open for comment until 5pm (AEST), 28 September 2018.

During the consultation period, applications for project registration and Australian carbon credit units will continue to be assessed in accordance with the method requirements, the documentasset::draft operational policy, and documentasset::interim posture.

Guidance a​vailable

Please note that the Clean Energy Regulator has reviewed the method rules and developed an documentasset:Operational policy on crediting for NFMR and HIR projects and documentasset:Interim posture on crediting for NFMR and HIR projects as guidance to help project participants understand what we will assess when considering ​whether to credit abatement with Australian carbon credit units (ACCUs).

Consultation on the guidance is open. Please forward any written feedback to HIR-NHMR@cleanenergyregulator.gov.au
