Verification /CertificationVerification is a periodic review to determine actual emission reductions of the JI/CDM project activities. Following this process, the credits in the form of CERs are issued. CERs has now become an international market commodity.
The verification/certification has to be performed by an independent operational entity different from the one that performed the validation. Only for small scale projects the CDM Executive Board can accept that the same operational entity is allowed to carry out both the validation and verification/certification.
The verification is a result-oriented process to determine the emission reductions achieved by the project. Continued compliance with the criteria defined under the Kyoto Protocol is also verified.
The verification includes:
- Review of monitoring results and data collection systems linked to emission reductions.
- Review of established practices and the accuracy of data collected, and monitoring equipment.
- Review of the management systems supporting the reported emission reductions.
- Interviews with project participants and stake-holders.
To get your certification of emission reductions, you need to implement an effective JI/CDM project that complies with the requirements of the Kyoto Protocol.
