CORSIA is the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation. International governments have adopted CORSIA to stabilise net CO2 emissions from international aviation from 2021.
If a flight takes off from a UK airport and lands in an airport outside of the European Economic Area (EEA), this flight is subject to CORSIA. Internal flights within the UK and to the EEA are subject to the UK Emissions Trading Scheme.
CORSIA obligations came into force on 26 May 2021 for UK administered aeroplane operators. These obligations are set out in the Air Navigation Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA) Order 2021. This implements the International Civil Aviation Organisation’s (ICAO) Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs), Annex 16, Volume IV, CORSIA in the UK.
The purpose of this consultation is to seek views on:
- Proposals to establish a new charging policy for fees and charges associated with the administration of CORSIA for Northern Ireland registered aeroplane operators by NIEA from May 2022.
NIEA has previously consulted on fees and charges associated with the UK ETS in February 2021, but this only included charges associated with aviation activities within scope of the UK ETS.
