The current CCA program began on April 1, 2013. Budget 2011 announced that the plan would be maintained until 2023 and that the 51 existing sectors would continue to benefit from the CCA scheme and the climate change tax rebate. It was also announced that the reduction of the climate change tax on electricity for CCA participants would increase to 90% from April 2013. The Agreements on Climate Change (Amendment of Agreements) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018, SI 2018/1205 (CCA EU Exit Regulations) come into force at the time of the conclusion of intellectual property. Regulation 2 of eu withdrawal regulations introduces changes to both framework agreements and underlying agreements under the Climate Change Agreement (CCA). The amendments update the European Commission`s guidelines that define the definition of a company in difficulty to the most recent version of these guidelines. Furthermore, in light of Brexit, they correct the gaps in cross-references in the European Parliament and Council`s 2003/87/EC Directive 13 October 2003 establishing a greenhouse gas emissions trading scheme within the EU and amending the Council`s Directive 96/61/EC.

The guidelines provide additional details on the 2012 Climate Change Agreements (Eligible Facilities) Regulations and when the sub-measure must be installed to remain compliant with the CCA system. The guidelines also outline the standard methods used by the Environment Agency (the current CCA plan manager) to set performance targets for new entrants and existing participants who change the energy consumption covered by their agreement. An underlying agreement is made by an operator for a site or group of sites within a given sector. It contains energy efficiency or carbon efficiency targets adapted to their mode of operation under the framework agreement.
