CBAM: Commission launches call for applications for informal expert group

On 28 July 2022, the European Commission published a call for application for members of an informal expert group to provide advice and expertise on certain elements of the implementation of the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM). An integral part of the EU’s efforts to become a carbon neutral continent by 2050, the CBAM is a climate measure that should prevent the risk of carbon leakage and support the EU's increased ambition on climate mitigation overall.

The informal expert group will assist DG TAXUD to complete methods for the monitoring, reporting, quantification and verification of embedded emissions of products in the sectors in the scope of the CBAM, and in the early preparation of implementing acts, before submission to the relevant comitology committee.

While Member States’ authorities will form part of the expert group, applications are also sought from other organisations such as business associations and NGOs. The deadline to submit applications is 15 September 2022.
