The Emissions Reduction Assurance Committee (ERAC) is an independent statutory committee established under the Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative) Act 2011.
The ERAC assess the compliance of methodology determinations (methods) against the Offsets Integrity Standards to ensure the continued integrity of the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF).
Advice provided to the Minister by the ERAC is published with consultation information for each method.
View all finalised methods.
The ERAC conducts 2 types of method reviews.
All reviews have a period of public consultation. ERAC considers submissions and advises the Minister on the outcome of their reviews. If the review recommends changes to a method—a variation—these changes will be:
The Clean Energy Regulator is responsible for the consultation process. See previous consultations and reviews on our department’s Consultation Hub.
Projects can still be registered with the Clean Energy Regulator while a method is under review unless the ERAC has issued a legislative instrument under section 27A of the Act suspending applications under the method.
The ERAC Secretariat provides support to the ERAC for the ongoing performance of its functions and is the point of contact for the ERAC.
