Accessing the BC Carbon Registry

The BC Carbon Registry enables the issuance, transfer and retirement of compliance units, including offset units. These may be used by regulated operations to meet requirement or by the B.C. government to satisfy its carbon neutral commitments.

All registry users must apply for an account on the registry before submitting documents for review and acceptance or transacting units.
