Corrigendum to Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) of 30 January 2024 amending Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/331 as regards transitional Union-wide rules for harmonised free allocation of emission allowances

( Official Journal of the European Union L, 2024/873, 4 April 2024 )

On page 3, in recital 2, second sentence:

for:

‘Given that those installations do not have to surrender allowances in accordance with Article 12 of that Directive, it is appropriate not to consider heat delivered by those installations to other installations as covered by the European Union Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) for the purpose of free allocation.’,

read:

‘Given that those installations do not have to surrender allowances in accordance with Article 12 of Directive 2003/87/EC, it is appropriate not to consider heat delivered by those installations to other installations as covered by the European Union Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) for the purpose of free allocation.’.

On page 6, in recital 21, first sentence:

for:

‘To provide further incentives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions a provision on conditionality of free allocation on implementation of energy efficiency improvement measures was introduced in Article 10a, third subparagraph, of Directive 2003/87/EC, which needs to be supplemented.’,

‘To provide further incentives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions a provision on conditionality of free allocation on implementation of energy efficiency improvement measures was introduced in Article 10a(1), third subparagraph, of Directive 2003/87/EC, which needs to be supplemented.’.

On page 9, in recital 34:

for:

‘Following the review, to avoid double counting in terms of free allocation to the production of steel from iron sponge and to ensure that the product benchmarks for hot metal, EAF carbon steel and EAF high alloy steel do not overlap, it is necessary to exclude steel produced from iron sponge from the definition of the EAF carbon steel and EAF high alloy steel benchmarks.’,

On page 9, in recital 40, last sentence:

for:

‘For new entrants whose applications for free allocation are submitted on or after 1 January 2024, the amendments to this Regulation should apply to allocations relating to the period from 1 January 2024 while for allocations relating to the period until 31 December 2023 the Regulation in its version applicable on 31 December 2023 applies.’,

read:

On page 5, in Annex I, in the amendment to section 2, line 3 of the table of Annex I to Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/331:

for:

‘EAF carbon steel

Steel containing less than 8 % metallic alloying elements and tramp elements to such levels limiting the use to those applications where no high surface quality and processability is required and if none of the criteria for the content of the metal alloying elements and the steel quality for high alloy steel are met. Expressed in tonnes of crude secondary steel ex-caster.

Steel produced from iron sponge already covered under the hot metal benchmark is not covered by this benchmark.

All processes directly or indirectly linked to the process units electric arc furnace, secondary metallurgy, casting and cutting, post-combustion unit, dedusting unit, vessels heating stands, casting ingots preheating stands, scrap drying and scrap preheating are included.

Processes downstream of casting are not included.

For the purpose of data collection, the total electricity consumption within the system boundaries shall be considered.
