Our Validation Process

Enviro-access’s validation activities are based on the guidelines and specifications of internationally recognized standard ISO 14064-3. In addition, through its accreditation, Enviro-access implemented mechanisms to ensure its impartiality (see our impartiality policy) and the competency of its validation team members.

The validation process consists of four main steps: agreement on basic validation elements (goals, criterias, etc.); determination of the validation method; assessment of the GHG emissions reduction project plan; and the preparation of a report, including the validation opinion. First, the basic validation elements must be determined according to the specific requirements of the client and target user. Enviro-access then establishes a sampling plan and a validation plan that determines how the information provided will be assessed. Once this information is evaluated, Enviro-access can issue its opinion according to the basic elements determined at the outset. Finally, a report, including the validation opinion and describing these conclusions is provided to the client and target user.

Within this process, the project sponsor may be called upon during the assessment to answer questions from the validation team regarding various aspects of the project plan and greenhouse gas assertion.
