Patsy Reddy, Governor-General

Order in Council

At Wellington this 24th day of September 2018

Present:
Her Excellency the Governor-General in Council

These regulations are made under sections 163, 168, 233, 245, and 246 of the Climate Change Response Act 2002

(a)

on the advice and with the consent of the Executive Council; and

(b)

for Parts 1 and 2 of these regulations, on the recommendation of the Minister for Climate Change tendered after—

(i)

having had regard to New Zealand’s international obligations (if any) in respect of the collection of data and information relating to, and the measurement of, emissions and removals from the relevant activity; and

(ii)

having complied with the requirements specified in section 166 of that Act; and

(c)

for Part 3 of these regulations, on the recommendation of the Minister for Climate Change tendered after—

(i)

having had regard to New Zealand’s international obligations relating to synthetic greenhouse gases; and

(ii)

having taken into account the matters listed in section 233(6) of that Act; and

having complied with the requirements specified in section 247 of that Act.

Regulations

1 Title

These regulations are the Climate Change (Emissions Trading Scheme) Amendment Regulations 2018.

2 Commencement

(1)

Regulations 4 and 8 are deemed to have come into force on 1 January 2018.

(2)

The rest of these regulations come into force on 1 January 2019.

Part 1 Amendments to Climate Change (Other Removal Activities) Regulations 2009

3 Amendments to Climate Change (Other Removal Activities) Regulations 2009
4 Regulations 7D to 7F and cross-heading above regulation 7D revoked

Revoke regulations 7D to 7F and the cross-heading above regulation 7D.

5 New regulations 7D to 7F and cross-heading inserted

After regulation 7C, insert:

Production of liquid carbon dioxide for export

7D Application of regulations 7E and 7F

A person must comply with regulations 7E and 7F if—

(a)

the person, in any year, is a participant under section 54(1)(b) of the Act in relation to an embedding activity; and

(b)

the embedding activity carried out by the person is producing liquid carbon dioxide that is exported.

7E Collection of information for purpose of calculating removals from producing liquid carbon dioxide for export

Information must be collected about—

(a)

the total number of tonnes of liquid carbon dioxide exported in that year that was produced by the person; and

(b)

if the person wishes to submit a return for a period other than a year under section 66 of the Act, the total number of tonnes of liquid carbon dioxide exported in the other period that was produced by the person.

7F Method of calculating removals by exporting liquid carbon dioxide

Removals in relation to liquid carbon dioxide exported by the person in the year or other period covered by an emissions return must be calculated in accordance with the following formula:

R = A x 1

where—

A

is the total number of tonnes of liquid carbon dioxide produced by the person covered by the emissions return, as recorded under regulation 7E

R

is the removals in tonnes from the exportation of liquid carbon dioxide for the year or other return period covered by the emissions return.

Explanatory note

This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These regulations make changes to 3 sets of regulations made under the Climate Change Response Act 1992 (the Act) to update and clarify certain matters underpinning New Zealand’s emissions trading scheme.

Part 1 (regulations 3 to 5) amends the Climate Change (Other Removal Activities) Regulations 2009. The amendments—

  • revoke regulations 7D to 7F, which prescribe requirements in relation to collecting information about, and calculating removals of, natural gasoline. The amendment is deemed to have come into force on 1 January 2018 (as contemplated by section 163(3) of the Act):

  • insert new regulations 7D to 7F, which come into force on 1 January 2019, and prescribe requirements in relation to collecting information about, and calculating removals of, liquid carbon dioxide.

Part 2 (regulations 6 to 8) amends the Climate Change (Stationary Energy and Industrial Processes) Regulations 2009. The amendments—

  • update the default emissions factors prescribed in table 7 of Schedule 2 for combusting used tyres for energy (see regulation 7(1)):

  • replace table 10 of Schedule 2, which relates to the emissions factors for gas fields, to reflect changes in greenhouse gas emissions associated with natural gas use (see regulation 7(2)):

  • increase the global warming potential figure prescribed in table 2 of Schedule 2A for R448A (see regulation 8).

The amendments in regulation 7 come into force on 1 January 2019 and the amendment in regulation 8 is deemed to have come into force on 1 January 2018 (as contemplated by section 163(3) of the Act).

Part 3, which comes into force on 1 January 2019, amends the Climate Change (Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Levies) Regulations 2013, which relate to the synthetic greenhouse gas levy imposed by section 227 of the Act. The amendments—

  • replace regulation 10, which specifies the price of carbon, to specify the price for the 2019 levy year; and

  • update Schedule 1, which prescribes levy rates for leviable motor vehicles, to prescribe new levy rates; and

  • replace Schedule 2, which prescribes levy rates for leviable goods, to prescribe new levy rates and expand the class of leviable goods specified in item 14 to include water coolers containing synthetic greenhouse gas HFC134a to ensure that imports of these goods are consistent with the emissions pricing of other imports of goods containing synthetic greenhouse gases.

Regulatory impact assessment

The Ministry for the Environment produced a regulatory impact assessment on 7 September 2018 to help inform the decisions taken by the Government relating to the contents of this instrument.

Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 27 September 2018.
