European Green Deal aims to reduce carbon emissions by up to 55% by 2030 compared to 1990, ensure zero emissions by 2050 and make Europe the first climate-neutral continent in the world. In line with this target, the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) Regulation, registered as of October 1, 2023, was signed by the European Union Council on May 10, 2023 and published in the EU Official Journal numbered L 130/52.

Initially, six sectors with high emission intensity are included in the scope of CBAM. In the future, the CBAM may be extended to other ETS sectors.

  • Cement
  • Iron and Steel
  • Aluminium
  • Fertilisers
  • Hydrogen
  • Electricity

Within the framework of the CBAM Regulation, during the transitional period in effect until January 1,2026, carbon emissions released during the production stages of the imported products to the EU and the (indirect) emissions arising from the production of electricity used in the production processes will be reported.

Within the scope of CBAM, financial obligations will increase as of January 1, 2026, the beginning of the main implementation period. The reporting of the imported products within the regulation will only be permitted by "Authorized CBAM Declarants”. The operational process can be carried out directly by the importer or through indirect customs representatives.
