This page provides the information and forms you need to register your project to participate in the ACCU Scheme (formerly known as the Emissions Reduction Fund).

To register your project to receive credits under the Australian Carbon Credit Unit (ACCU) Scheme you will need to complete the online application process. For further information on the application process see
You must register your project through the
Clean Energy Regulator Client Portal.
The Client Portal is used to provide our Client's access to online forms, CER based systems and other important information.
This form must be downloaded, completed and submitted if you are applying to register a sequestration project or an area-based emissions avoidance project on an area of land where others hold an eligible interest. An eligible interest holder is anyone with a legal interest in the land on which a project is, or will be conducted. Please note the Clean Energy Regulator is working to make this form available in its Client Portal and will advise when work is complete.
To open an Australian National Registry of Emissions Units (ANREU) account, applicants must complete an application in the Clean Energy Regulator Online Services. For guidance on opening an ANREU account, refer to the
documentasset:How to open an ANREU account document.
Project registration allows a project to participate in the ACCU scheme. It is not an authority to conduct an activity. It does not override legal requirements to obtain permits or displace another authority’s role in interpreting and enforcing its laws.
It is important that ACCU Scheme participants make enquiries with respect to any state, territory and local requirements and comply with all other laws.
The Clean Energy Regulator may not issue ACCUs if there is non-compliance with other laws.
