Validation/verification bodies (VVBs) assess projects for conformity to ICRs Requirements, ISO 14064-2:2019. VVBs are qualified, independent third parties which ICR approves to conduct validation and verification based on their accreditation. This independent assessment process is crucial to ensuring the integrity of the projects registered with the ICR.
Validation and verification bodies are eligible to provide validation and verification services under the ICR if they are accredited under an ICR approved GHG program and/or accredited under ISO 14065 by an accreditation body that is a member of the International Accreditation Forum and signed an agreement with ICR. To apply to become an approved VVB with ICR, VVBs must complete an application and submit a signed application, along with any supporting evidence, to ICR and sign an agreement with the ICR for providing validation and verification. For further information, please refer to the ICR Requirement Document and the ICR Process Requirements.
To become approved VVB, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the ICR Team.
