Preliminary view on Advocate General’s Opinion on EU ETS Cross Sectoral Correction Factor (CSCF)

 IFIEC Europe is concerned about the stringency of the Commission Decision on the cross-sectoral correction factor (CSCF) which hampers competitiveness of energy-intensive industries in Europe. Therefore, IFIEC has a high interest in the CSCF legal case at the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU). The CJEU held its Oral Hearing on 3 September 2015 and subsequently the Advocate General provided an Opinion on 12 November 2015. The Court’s Judgement will follow in due course. The Opinion is non-binding to the Court.
