The Lead Verifier and Process tests that were organized by Directorate General of Environmental Impact Assessment, Permit and Inspection were held on July 23, 2016 at 10.00 am in Ankara. The test results were announced on September 8.
At this step, there are still no verification bodies authorized by the Ministry. With the result of the test and the payment of the document costs, people can receive the Lead Verifier and Verifier Certificates.
In summary; the verification process has not started since there are no verification bodies that have yet been authorized by the Ministry.
Related with the process; “Regulation of Change about Regulation on Monitoring of Greenhouse Gas Emissions” being published in the Official Gazette, dated June 29, 2016 and no. 29757. Verification processes of emissions reports for 2015 and 2016 were merged with this amendment in the regulation. In this case, the emission reports of 2015 together with the emission reports of 2016 should be verified by 30 April 2017 and communicated to the Ministry.
However, the important question here is whether this amendment in the Regulation combined with the reporting and verification of 2 years. These two processes were not merged with this amendment in the regulation. This means that the organization and the verifier organization will carry out the processes separately for verification of the emission reports for 2015 and 2016. Only two processes have the same deadline. In this case, two separate contracts will be made, two separate annual emission reports will be prepared and two separate verification reports will be prepared.
