Overview

The SGRR first came into effect in 2004, and requires facilities that emit 10,000 tonnes or more of specified gases to submit annual reports on their emissions.

Regulation

Emissions reporting

Specified Gas Reporting Standard

The Specified Gas Reporting Standard details who is required to report specified gas emissions and how the information is collected. Facilities that are subject to reporting requirements under the SGRR must follow the requirements set out in the Specified Gas Reporting Standard.

Facilities subject to the SGRR report their emissions through the federal government’s Single Window Information Management (SWIM) System.

The reported information is used to inform policy development and for analysis and reporting purposes.

Quantification methodologies

The following finalized chapters of the Quantification Methodologies for the Carbon Competitiveness Incentive Regulation and the Specified Gas Reporting Regulation have been posted and are intended to be mandatory for SGRR 2018 emissions reports:

  • Chapter 1 Stationary Fuel Combustion
  • Chapter 8 Industrial Processes
  • Chapter 12 Imports
  • Chapter 13 Production
  • Chapter 14 Carbon Dioxide Emissions from Combustion of Biomass
  • Chapter 17 Measurement, Sampling, Analysis and Data Management

Additional quantification methodologies are in development and will be posted on the Carbon Competitiveness Incentive Regulation page for comment through 2018 and 2019.
