Eligibility for a CCA

Eligibility to hold a CCA depends on the facility carrying out an ‘eligible process’. Eligible processes in the 53 sectors covered by CCAs are provided for in primary legislation, the Finance Act 2000 (as amended), which specifies eligibility through two pieces of legislation:

  • The Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2010 (EPR) (as amended). A site will be eligible if it is covered by one of the Part A(1) or A(2) headings in Part 2 of Schedule 1. Note that eligibility is determined by reference to the activities listed in the EPR for England and Wales regardless of the location of the process in the UK (that is, these descriptions also cover Scotland and Northern Ireland).

The above information regarding the eligibility and EPR Status is taken from the Environment Agency's "Climate Change Agreement Operations Manual", which can be downloaded here.

The umbrella agreement for each sector lists all the processes and activities carried out within the sector that are eligible for a CCA.  Jacobs will work with you and your sector association to determine if you run an eligible process.
