ISCC Newsletter Nr. 81 vom 23. August 2016
Final reminder: NEW ISCC Greenhouse Gas Training
29 – 30 August 2016 - Cologne (Germany)
Learn about new GHG requirements according to the amended RED and the re-recognised ISCC scheme.
The changes will have a high impact on biofuel supply chains and forwarding of GHG information. Deliveries of raw or processed material not fulfilling these requirements will no longer be acceptable. In addition, the GHG quota under the FQD and increasing demand for GHG information also in food, feed and chemical markets require a clear framework for GHG calculations.
The 1.5-day NEW ISCC Greenhouse Gas Training covers the new methodological requirement for GHG calculations and verifications. Case studies of calculations and audits of GHG calculators will be conducted and discussed by the participants. ISCC GHG experts will be available throughout the training for individual discussion.
The participation in an ISCC GHG Training is mandatory for at least one GHG expert per certification body that is auditing and verifying individual GHG calculations. Participation is also highly recommended to all auditors and ISCC system participants to guarantee a clear verification, easy implementation and future compliance with system requirements.
