About the NGER scheme

The National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007 (NGER Act) introduced a single national framework for reporting and disseminating company information about greenhouse gas emissions, energy production, energy consumption and other information specified under NGER legislation.

The objectives of the NGER Act are to:

Important annual dates for the NGER scheme

1 July Start of the reporting year for the NGER scheme
30 June End of the reporting year for the NGER scheme
31 August NGER registration applications are due (corporations only need to register once, for the first year they trigger a threshold)
31 October NGER reports are due
28 February We publish an extract of the NGER register and data for the previous (financial year) reporting period

The NGER data privacy statement applies to information we collect for the purposes of the NGER Act. We are also bound by the secrecy provisions in Part 3 of the Clean Energy Regulator Act 2011 in relation to information we collect for the purposes of the NGER Act.
