Proposed technical updates to New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme regulations for 2018

This consultation has closed

We are consulting with parties affected by proposed technical updates to the following three regulations under the New Zealand Emission Trading Scheme (NZ ETS).

NZ ETS regulations require amending from time to time to update technical factors and address anomalies when they arise. This helps ensure the NZ ETS is fit for purpose and as accurate as possible.

This consultation is not related to broader proposals for improvements to the NZ ETS. Those changes are the subject of a separate consultation, see Proposed improvements to the NZ ETS.
