The Carbon Accounting Scheme (Scotland) Amendment Regulations 2017. Comes into force 6th May. These Regulations amend the Carbon Accounting Scheme (Scotland) Regulations 2010 (SSI 2010/216).
Amendments update the definition of “European Union allowance” to reflect the transition from phase 2 (2008-2012) to phase 3 (2013-2020) of the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme (“EU ETS”). They also amend the rules for the accounting of carbon units in relation to emissions from aviation activities in 2014 match the method used to calculate the appropriate net Scottish emissions account figure for that year.
