ISO 14064-3:2019 Validation and Verification of GHG Inventories and GHG Projects

Validation is the systematic, independent and documented process for the evaluation of a greenhouse gas (GHG) assertion in a GHG project plan against agreed validation criteria.

Validation is normally performed for GHG emission reduction projects before they are implemented and it helps ensure that the project conforms to the requirements of a standard or the rules of a GHG program.

This 2-day course will provide detailed training on the approach to validation using the ISO 14064-3 standard, with specific examples of how the validation approach would be applied to a project that conforms with the ISO 14064-2 standard or the requirements of the WRI/WBCSD GHG Project Protocol.

Key Course Objectives

Attendees at this course will learn how to enter the emerging carbon trading marketplace.  As carbon offset trading schemes and new government regulations increase, so will the need for qualified, independent GHG Validators.  This Validator course is formulated to equip all attendees with the knowledge to ensure that your projects conform to the requirements of ISO 14064 and to the rules of the GHG program.  This course builds on  GHG Projects course (ISO 14064-2) and provides detailed training on the approach to validation using the ISO 14064-3 standard.

Course Elements

This course will explore the following concepts in detail:

  1. Planning the GHG quantificationAssessing your own competencies to conduct the validation
  2. Establishing the validation scope, objectives, criteria and level of assurance with the client
  3. Establishing a materiality threshold for the validation
  4. Assessing the risks involved in a validation
  5. Developing a validation plan, including a sampling plan
  6. Assessing GHG information systems and controls
  7. Assessing the GHG documentation, data, information and emission reduction or removal
  8. Estimates or measurements for the project
  9. Evaluating the GHG assertion against the agreed-upon verification criteria
  10. Issuing the validation statement, including any limitations that may be put on the statement
