SEPA is the environmental regulator for all Aviation ETS operators that have their registered office in Scotland. From 2013, Aviation ETS operators without a registered office in the UK are allocated according to where their highest percentage of emissions takes place. SEPA is therefore the regulator for the Aircraft Operators whose main emissions take place during flights to or from Scotland as well as those with a registered address in Scotland. Contact SEPA if you have any questions about Aviation ETS.

The EU ETS covers flights which depart from or arrive in countries participating in the EU ETS. European Commission has recently proposed some temporary changes external link to the EU ETS for aviation.
