On 17 August 2023, the European Commission adopted the rules governing the implementation of the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (#CBAM) during its transitional phase, which starts on 1 October 2023 and runs until the end of 2025.

CBAM will initially apply to imports into the EU of certain goods and selected precursors with carbon intensive production and at most significant risk of carbon leakage: cement, iron and steel, aluminium, fertilisers, electricity and hydrogen

The European Commission is organising six online webinars, covering general features of the CBAM as well as the specifics of each sector (iron & steel, aluminium, cement, fertilisers, electricity and hydrogen).

Interested stakeholders are invited to register and participate in the webinars, and will have the possibility to ask questions which will be answered live. All webinars will be recorded and uploaded on the Customs & Tax EU Learning Portal. The registration links will become available on this page.

The Commission is also launching E-learning courses. A first nano-learning module gives a short top level introduction to CBAM for EU importers and customs declarants and third country operators. It presents the purpose and aims of CBAM, and implications for importers and declarants, the main criteria for CBAM pricing, the six sectors targeted by CBAM and the roles and responsibilities within the CBAM administration system, as well as planning priorities including key milestones and explains the calculation methods and reporting requirements. Further training modules covering sector-specific content will soon become available on the Customs & Tax EU Learning Portal.
