Companies are responsible for assessing their own obligations under the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007 (NGER Act). The 3 steps below will help you understand your obligations under the NGER scheme.

Registering for NGER

Step 1: Access your obligations

To assess your obligations under the NGER scheme you must:

  • understand the reporting thresholds
  • identify your controlling corporation and your controlling corporation's group members, and
  • determine the facilities under the operational control of your controlling corporation and its group members.

Step 2: Registration

If you have assessed that your organisation is a controlling corporation or responsible emitter that has an obligation to apply for registration, you will need to complete the relevant form via the Clean Energy Regulator Client portal.

Reporting under NGER

Step 3: Reporting

All registered controlling corporations are required to submit an NGER report each year until they corporation is deregistered. For more information on how and what to report go to how to report.
