Directions to the Chief Inspector:
Issued under Articles 50(4) and 60(6) of the Greenhouse Gas Emissions Trading Scheme Order 2020
Directions are given by the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs under section 52 of the Climate Change Act 2008.
The relevant regulatory bodies in each UK nation are responsible for the regulation of the UK Emissions Trading Scheme (UK ETS). This includes issuing civil penalties for non-compliance with greenhouse gas emissions permits. These regulatory bodies need further directions to ensure consistency of approach. In Northern Ireland:
- The Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs issues these Directions as the relevant national authority;
- The Chief Inspector is the regulatory body.
The directions are pursuant to penalties issued to installation operators for operating without a permit (article 50(4)) and to ultra-small emitters that have failed to notify that their emissions have exceeded the maximum permitted amount (article 60(6)).
Other UK administrations have issued similar Directions to their respective regulators, which can be found here:
