Important information for responsible emitters
The National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (Safeguard Mechanism) Rule 2015 has been amended to extend the 2018–19 baseline application deadline from 31 October 2019 to 15 April 2020 for facilities with a declared multi-year period, that covers the 2018–19 and 2019–20 compliance years. It also allows facilities to use the transitional calculated baseline criteria a second time from the 2019–20 year onwards, to adopt newly established government-determined prescribed production variables. Further information can be found in the explanatory statement for this latest amendment.
This website includes references to prescribed (annually adjusted) and prescribed (fixed) production variables that are yet to be finalised by the Department of the Environment and Energy.
Applications will not be able to use prescribed production variables or default emissions intensities until they have been included in Schedules 2 and 3 of the Safeguard Rule.
For more information please contact the Clean Energy Regulator.
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.
