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 was not related to the proposed Climate Change Response (Zero Carbon) Amendment Bill or proposed Emissions Trading Scheme improvements.
