Training on Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) for instalations

From October 1, 2023, the carbon border tax (CBAM – Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism) came into force in the European Union. Exporting to the EU goods produced in high-emission industries (cement, iron, steel, aluminum, electricity and some chemical industry products such as fertilizers and hydrogen) is associated with additional obligations and formalities, and after the transitional period, additional costs. This also applies to derived products, such as products made of the mentioned metals, such as wire, screws, sheets, plates, profiles, pipes or containers.
If you export this type of goods, you should take part in this training to learn the CBAM rules and the obligations that must be fulfilled.

Training could take from 2 to 8 hours depending on number of goods covered.
