Draft new certification documents available


Nederlandse versie

The DRAFT new documents for certification of biomass for energy applications and biobased products are available on this page. These are the versions as approved by the EC for Directive (EU) 2018/2001 (Renewable Energy Directive [RED II]) and the supplementary Implementing Regulation (EU) 2022/996 on rules to verify sustainability and greenhouse gas emissions saving criteria and low indirect land-use change-risk criteria from June 14, 2022.

Before these new documents can come into effect, a number of steps still need to be taken, including translation (NL), final editing and an assessment by the Dutch Accreditation Council. The documents have already been approved by the European Commission. The informative versions of the new scheme documents have been made available so that certificate holders have the opportunity to prepare for them.

It is important to take into account that the final versions may differ from these informative versions. No rights can be derived from these draft documents and the audits are currently carried out on the basis of the Current certification documents.
