Amending an exemption certificate

03 February 2023
‚Äč RET

Applicants who were issued with an exemption certificate for the year can apply to amend it. Applicants may also apply to amend their certifiable amount, assuming it has been issued. The Clean Energy Regulator (CER) can also make amendments.

Applicant amendments

Applicants may apply to amend their issued exemption certificates and certifiable amounts, as applicable, through the Client Portal. Applicants may apply to:

  • add or change a liable entity or entities before 31 December of the calendar year
  • amend other application information.

See Apply to amend your exemption certificate for instructions on submitting an amendment, including Client Portal user tips.

This information supports an accurate application with supporting documentation being lodged. Failing to review this information may result in an inaccurate application being lodged. Further, you could provide false and misleading information or documentation with your inaccurate application which carries a maximum penalty of 12 months imprisonment under sections 137.1 and 137.2 of the Criminal Code Act 1995.

Applicants may also need to update the certifiable amount. See Submitting monthly data in your exemption determination tool for your certifiable amount for instructions on submitting certifiable amount data, including Client Portal user tips.

Contact us if you need to make an amendment prior to the current year.

CER amendments

CER can initiate an amendment to an exemption certificate before 31 December of the year that the exemption certificate applies.

CER can initiate an amendment to:

  • change the liable entity or entities
  • change the certifiable amount period if the emissions-intensive trade-exposed activity ceases at the site
  • change the emission-intensive trade-exposed activity
  • change the exemption certificate due to metering or use amount formula inaccuracies
  • change the notice of certifiable amount due to data inaccuracies.

CER will notify the applicant and nominated liable entity in writing when we initiate an amendment.
