This webinar provides information and assistance to applicants to
submit a validly made emissions-intensive trade-exposed exemption certificate application in 2017.
All applicants are required to provide a response to question 49 that meets the information requirements listed.
Applicants can provide this as an attachment.
Applicants can review responses provided to this question on previous applications and any Requests for information that were issued by the Clean Energy Regulator to identify the information requirements and level of detail required.
If you have not been issued a request for information, this would indicate that the level of detail provided has been sufficient on previous applications.
However, we do suggest that you review information previously supplied to ensure that the response meets the requirements.
We will send this text out to all participants of the webinar.
Wording from webinar reads:
This dot points asks the applicant to provide an approximate administrative cost of more accurate testing methods that have been implemented at the site. The reference to administrative costs does not refer to capital costs.
Responding to this dot point with wording such as “More accurate testing methods have not been implemented as the current methods are appropriate to the industry and product” will meet the requirement.
The closer you submit your application to the due date the less time the Regulator has to assess its validity before the deadline. While we aim to assess your application as quickly as possible to ensure your application is validly made, please refer to the checklist and guidelines on the website.
If the copy of the contract covers 2017, e.g. 2016-2020 you will not need to provide again.
In the circumstance where an audit report is not being submitted, the applicant must provide supporting information that indicates that all measurement and calibration methods have been undertaken for the 2015-16 year.
This may include but is not limited to - calibration receipts or testing reports for measurement equipment.
The Clean Energy Regulator has 60 days under the legislation but we will aim to do them as quickly as possible.
This question was taken on notice during the webinar. Here is the response:
Question 24 can be marked ‘yes’ if the applicant is aware that an additional liable entity is contracted to supply electricity to the site during the year. This could be either multiple suppliers at one time or a new contract beginning with a single liable entity.
Question 25 then asks the applicant to identify if the applicant is submitting a ‘Multiple liable entity’ form under paragraph 22M(b)(i) of 22M(b)(ii). These paragraphs refer to the circumstance where multiple liable entities are contracted to supply electricity to the site at the site at the same time – for example a 60/40 split in supply to site.
If the applicant has a change of liable entity through the year but does not have multiple liable entities contracted at the same time, they would mark No to question 25.
If you are a registered person, liable entity or have been issued with an exemption certificate, then you must keep records for 5 years after those records were prepared or obtained. More detail on record keeping requirements can be found under section 160 of the Renewable Energy (Electricity) Act 2000.
Yes. There is a checklist included in the form, which is published on our website.
Yes. The liable entity is the electricity supplier (i.e. your electricity retailer).
