How are the verifiers accredited?
Accreditation of verifiers
Verifiers that assess the monitoring plans, verify the emissions reports, and issue verification reports and documents of compliance referred to in the Regulation shall be accredited for activities under the scope of the Regulation by a national accreditation body pursuant to Regulation (EC) No 765/2008.
Where no specific provisions concerning the accreditation of verifiers are laid down in this Regulation, the relevant provisions of Regulation (EC) No 765/2008 shall apply.
The detailed rules for the accreditation of verifiers are specified in the draft Delegated Act on Verification and Accreditation.
Verifavia is already accredited under ISO 14065 by the UKAS for the aviation sector since 2010. The accreditation process to expand the accreditation to include shipping emissions is on-going, with the UKAS currently conducting the assessment of the documents and procedures implemented by Verifavia to independently verify shipping emissions under the EU MRV.
