Participants who have been registered with respect to post-1989 forest land may make certain changes to their registration; in some cases they are obligated to make changes. These changes will affect the post-1989 forest land registered in relation to a particular participant.
To apply to remove some, but not all, of the post-1989 forest land within a CAA from the ETS.
At any stage after a participant has been registered, either voluntarily or because the land within the CAA is no longer eligible forest land. One form can be used to remove some forest land from more than one CAA. However, this form should not be used if ALL of the forest land in a CAAs is being removed (in which case the Remove a Carbon Accounting Area form should be used). This form should not be used if the land remaining in a CAA would no longer be eligible Post-1989 forest land.
A participant who is already registered in respect of post-1989 forest land
Participants must file an emissions return (unit reconciliation) within 20 working days of applying to remove land from a CAA. The participant must surrender an equivalent number of emissions units to NZUs previously transferred to a participant in respect of the removed CAAs. There is no obligation to surrender units for land where a natural event that permanently prevents a forest being re-established. This means that you do not need to file an emissions return (unit reconciliation) within 20 working days of applying to remove a CAA.
You can submit a Post-1989 Remove Land from a CAA form by printing, completing and sending the form Post-1989 Remove Land from a CAA to MPI by postal mail.
