Column:Validation and Verification on GHG Emission Reductions

Validation

Validation is the process of independent evaluation of a project activity by a designated operational entity against the requirements of the CDM as set out in CDM modalities and procedures and relevant decisions of the Kyoto Protocol Parties and the CDM Executive Board (EB), on the basis of the project design document.

A validation contract will be signed between CEC and the CDM project participant(s). CEC will start the formal validation process when related application documents (including the PDD) were received, Works to be accomplished by CEC during the validation process include: making PDD publicly available, desk review, on-site assessment, and completion of the draft validation report, completion of the final validation report and submission of the final validation report to the EB. CDM EB will make the report publicly available and register this project as an official CDM project if no other issues were identified.

The validation process flow presents as below:  




Verification / Certification

Verification is the independent review and ex post determination by the designated operational entity of the monitored reductions in anthropogenic emissions by sources of greenhouse gases that have occurred as a result of a registered CDM project activity during the verification period.

Certification is the written assurance by the designated operational entity that, during the specified period, the project activity achieved the emission reductions as verified.

A verification contract will first be signed between CEC and the CDM project participants for the verification/certification process. CEC will start the formal verification process after the related application documents received. Works to be accomplished by CEC during the verification process include: publication of the Monitoring report, desk review, on-site assessment, completion of the draft verification/certification report, competition of the final verification/certification report and submission of the report to the CDM EB. The EB will make the report publicly available and issue CERs (Certified Emission Reduction credits) if no other issues were identified.
