Consultation description

We plan to change the standard rules sets SR2018 No 1 to 6 and SR2018 No 8 to accommodate specified generators that may include new medium combustion plant.

We also propose to amend standard rules sets:

  • SR2018 No 7 for new MCP - we plan to expand the number of scenarios within the rules
  • SR2018 No 9 - to clarify when to submit emissions monitoring information

See the consultation document for the specific amendments.
