The 2012 regulations require you to pay a civil penalty if you do not surrender sufficient allowances to cover your reportable emissions by 30 April each year, and for various other breaches of your permit and monitoring plan.
The penalty is set by the EU Emissions Trading Scheme Directive, which has been implemented across every Member State in the European Union.
There is no discretion over whether or not to impose the civil penalty for failure to surrender allowances, however there is some discretion in relation to other offences.
For more information, please consult the 2012 GHG regulations, and the subsequent amendments.
