Carbon Capture and Storage: Legal and Regulatory Review

About this report

The CCS Legal and Regulatory Review gathers contributions by national, regional, state and provincial governments at all stages of carbon capture and storage (CCS) regulatory development. The Review provides an overview of CCS advances since the last edition as well as those expected to occur in the following 6 to 12 months. An overview of CCS legal and regulatory developments to date is also provided. Since the first edition of the IEA CCS Legal and Regulatory Review in 2010, activity in the regulation of CO2 storage and CCS more broadly has shifted from creating and implementing frameworks to the permitting of projects within these frameworks.
