Draft sampling guidance for measurement-based soil carbon methods: have your say

Main content area


16 March 2020

The Clean Energy Regulator (CER) and our department seek views on proposed changes to sampling requirements for the certain Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) methods and their subsidiary documents:

  • Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative – Sequestering Carbon in Soils in Grazing Systems) Methodology Determination 2014
  • Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative — Measurement of Soil Carbon Sequestration in Agricultural Systems) Methodology Determination 2018

The proposed changes aim to clarify and improve sampling assurance processes and controls for projects using the measurement-based soil carbon methods under the fund.

Read more about the proposed changes and make a submission on the CER website.

Submissions close 5pm AEDT, Friday 27 March.
