Applying to merge or split carbon accounting areas in the ETS
When post-1989 forest land is registered in the ETS, the person registering it must choose 1 or more carbon accounting areas. This is a way to divide your forest land into individual areas for reporting in the ETS.
From 2023, a change in the rules for the ETS means that you can reconfigure existing carbon accounting areas. To do this, you can:
- divide carbon accounting areas into 2 or more areas
- merge existing carbon accounting areas into 1 area.
Details about how to apply to do this will be published in early 2023.
Note: Information on this web page does not apply to pre-1990 forest land.
