29 March 2012 – A Carbon Market Institute report raises questions about the institutional framework for the operation, regulation and oversight of the Clean Energy legislative package.

The report, Carbon Market Integrity:A Review of the Australian Carbon Pricing Mechanism questions whether the acts and regulations will be sufficient to protect the nascent carbon market from disruption and loss caused for example by theft and fraud.

CMI says in a statement that the answer to this question will unfold  as the carbon market evolves along with key regulations for the Australian emissions trading scheme

The research, authored by academics from Bond University, Queensland, is a comprehensive review of the legislative frameworks which underpin the EU, New Zealand and Californian emissions trading schemes.
