The German national emissions trading system (nEHS) for fuels started on 01.01.2021. The basis of the nEHS is the Fuel Emissions Trading Act (BEHG), which forms a central part of the German government's national climate protection legislation.
If you place fuels such as natural gas, heating oil or diesel and petrol on the market, then you will fall under the legal provisions of the SESTA from the start of 2021. Fuels such as. Coal or crude oil have been covered by the nEHS since 01.01.2023. From 2024, the incineration of waste will also be included in the nEHS. A complete list of all fuels affected can be found in Annexes 1 and 2 of the SESTA. You don't know exactly whether you are a "distributor" within the meaning of SESTA? You lack both the time and the resources to deal satisfactorily with the challenges involved?
