A detailed explanation of the certification process can be found in our description


Certification of products in the field of biomass:

Certification according to ISCC and REDcert is based on DIN EN 45011, which defines the criteria for product certification. We have implemented these requirements for you in document AA146EN and supplemented them with further certification rules.

RSPO certification is based on DIN EN 17021, but includes additional specific requirements which we have described for you in document AA158EN.

Verification of greenhouse gases (ISO 14065):

Verifications within the framework of EU emissions trading (e.g. emissions reporting) are based on the requirements of the European Accreditation and Verification Regulation.
For the area not regulated by law (carbon footprint), the verification procedure is carried out in accordance with the requirements of ISO 14064-3.

A detailed description of both procedures can be found in document AA147 (German).
