This publication provides guidance to firms whose activities are potentially eligible for industrial allocation under the New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme. It provides extra guidance for completing forms required for complying with Gazette Notices which ask for data about activities specifying more than one product.
On 26 March 2010, the Ministry for the Environment published Industrial Allocation Guide to Data Collection (the Guide). This was to help firms comply with the requirements of a Gazette Notice, issued under section 161D of the Climate Change Response Act 2002 (the Act). The Notice requires information about activities to be submitted for the purposes of determining eligibility for allocation and the baselines for subsequent allocations. The Guide applies to all activities.
This supplementary guide (the Supplementary Guide) provides extra guidance in relation to activities for which more than one product (basis of allocation) is specified in the Gazette Notice. In particular, the Supplementary Guide provides guidance to firms on apportioning their emissions between each of the products specified. All the terms used in the Supplementary Guide are consistent with the terms defined and used in the Guide. Firms should use the Supplementary Guide in conjunction with the Guide when completing their Data Forms, Bases of Preparation and Declaration.
This Supplementary Guide is designed to help firms comply with the requirements of the Gazette Notice when completing the documents required by that Notice. It does not take precedence over the Notice itself, or any other associated legislation.
