More regulatory discretion in EU ETS plans

The government’s integrated approach to EU trading scheme regulation from 2013 aims to tidy up a complex array of regulations.

Regulators would be allowed more discretion on the application of civil sanctions for non-compliance under the UK’s latest draft regulations on the EU emissions trading scheme (EU ETS).

The energy and climate department (DECC) proposals also aim to roll the 13 sets of regulations currently covering the EU ETS into one to cut regulatory burdens, duplication and costs.1

The main purpose of the change is to replace the 2005 greenhouse gas regulations with new legislation in line with the revised 2009 EU ETS Directive (ENDS Report 408, pp 38-41).
