Over and under crediting refers to situations where a participant of the Renewable Energy Target or Emissions Reduction Fund receives more or less certificates or units than they are entitled to.

When determining the appropriate action required to correct any instance of over or under crediting, the Clean Energy Regulator will take into consideration any suspected or known fraud and non-compliance, and also whether the participant has come forward voluntarily.
The Clean Energy Regulator may also use its compliance and enforcement powers, including audits, and a review of a participant’s fit and proper person status.
