The CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme is a mandatory emissions trading scheme for the UK that aims to reduce CO2 emissions through energy efficiency.
Compliance with the scheme is set out in the CRC Order which can be viewed here.
To help us regulate the scheme, we have a number of enforcement methods at our disposal, which could result in enforcement notices or civil penalties.
The aim of enforcement is to make sure business and industry takes appropriate action to protect the environment, make sure regulations which prevent pollution are complied with and secure better outcomes for the environment, people and business.
We may decide to undertake enforcement action for non-compliance with legislation surrounding the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme.
Further information regarding penalites and offences can be found in the CRC Guidance document:
Statutory guidance on the discretion of penalties in the CRC Efficiency Scheme and the appeals guidance can be found on the Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC) website:
