National Implementation Measures (NIMs) Assessment

NIMs will take place between January and September 2019. Find out everything you need to know about the assessment.

The Government has directed the Environment Agency (EA) to proceed with preparations for the next phase of emissions trading which will operate from 2021 – 2030.

Due to ongoing Brexit negotiations the full detail of the future scheme is not yet known.
In preparation for future reporting, the EA has notified participants in EU Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) Phase 3 that the data collection exercise, National Implementation Measures (NIMs), will take place between January 2019 and September 2019.

What are NIMs?

There is a requirement to benchmark installations in emission trading schemes to ensure a fair and equitable distribution of free allocation (carbon allowances). The NIMs is a method of benchmarking the emissions of participating installations.
Reporting is to include 2014-2018 verified figures and the timeframe for completing the information is between the 1st January 2019 – 31st May 2019. 31st May 2019 is the deadline for all NIMs assessments to be completed, verified and submitted.
