Greenhouse Gas Emissions Trading Scheme (Amendment) Regulations 2006 (S.I. No. 737 of 2006).

Type of law

These Regulations amend the Greenhouse Gas Emissions Trading Scheme Regulations 2005 consequential to changes in the Directive 2003/87/EC of the European Parliament and the Council establishing a scheme for greenhouse gas emission allowance trading within the Community and amending Council Directive 96/61/EC.
The Regulations, among other things: provide with respect to allocation of allowances of installations that began operating before 2004; provide a power for the regulator to delay the allocation of allowances each year to an operator who has been allocated allowances from either the new entrant reserve or the late installation reserve, where certain conditions in the approved national allocation plan are fulfilled: require the payment of a fee by a verifier or an organization which wishes to be appointed as an additional authorised representative to be included in the registry; contain new provisions relating to the surrender and revocation of greenhouse gas emissions permits; and permit the use of information held or collected for the purposes of these Regulations to be used for the purpose of preparing and publishing energy and emissions statistics.
