Safeguard facility reported emissions

26 March 2020

Important information for responsible emitters

The National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (Safeguard Mechanism) Rule 2015 has recently been amended to include prescribed production variables and default emissions intensities in Schedules 2 and 3 of the Safeguard Rule.

Applications can now use the prescribed production variables and default emissions intensities.

Applications for calculated and production adjusted baselines that commence 1 July 2018 may be submitted up until, and including, 15 April 2020 for facilities with a declared multi-year period covering 2018–19 and 2019–20.

Under the 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.
