Activities allowed under the human-induced regeneration and native forest from managed regrowth methods are designed to achieve native forest cover of the land by encouraging regeneration.
On 8 May 2019, the Clean Energy Regulator released the final documentasset::Guidelines on stratification and evidence and records under HIR and NFMR methods.
The guidelines were developed in consultation with industry and technical experts to support participation and clarify project requirements for all project proponents operating projects under these methods.
The Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative) Amendment Rule (No.2) 2018 (the 2018 CFI Rule amendments) and the Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative) Amendment Rule (No.1) 2019 (the 2019 CFI Rule amendments) were developed in parallel with these guidelines. They were designed to complement each other, and the existing legislation. Proponents should ensure that they are familiar with the amendments, in addition to the Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative) Act 2011, relevant method, and these guidelines, as required.
These guidelines supersede the Archived: Interim posture on crediting for NFMR and HIR projects and Archived: Operational policy on crediting for NFMR and HIR projectsused to assess crediting abatement for human-induced regeneration and native forest from managed regrowth methods from November 2017 to May 2019.
