Regulatory Impact Statement: ETS Review 2011: Proposed amendments to the Climate Change Response Act 2002 – Part 1

Date: February 2012

Under current legislation, a number of changes to the New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) will come into force on 1 January 2013, such as an end to the transition measures. If the Government wants to make changes to these ETS settings then legislative amendments need to be made before the end of 2012.
