The Greenhouse Gas Emissions Trading Scheme Order 2020
The order provides details on the rules governing the issuance and surrender of "allowances" equivalent to emissions falling within the scope of the sceheme. A number of derogations from the general rules are created for hospitals and small and ultra-small emitters. A modified version of the EU Monitoring, Reporting and Verification scheme is also mandated under the legislation.
The order also describes the different agencies responsible for the regulation of the scheme across the UK and provides for enforcement of the scheme and sets out the penalty regime for non-compliance.
