The auctioning of allowances is governed by the EU Auctioning Regulation. This covers the timing administration and other aspects of auctioning. In addition, for all EEX's emissions auctions, the respective rules and procedures of EEX and ECC apply.
As an important aspect for accessing the auctions, the EU Auctioning Regulation defines the categories of participants who are eligible to apply to bid in the auctions, and requires certain admission criteria to be fulfilled (cf. Article 18 and 19).
