The training reflects all amendments that have been required due to the re-recognition of the ISCC EU System by the European Commission.

Day 1: Overview of the ISCC System as solution provider for deforestation free supply chains. The framework requirements for the different markets (biofuels, food, feed, bio-based products) are presented as well as the certification of circular economy, wood based supply chains and biogas. There will also be an overview of the certification processes and related documents. Another topic is the conduction of sustainability audits on farm/ plantation level and the assessment of no go areas and land use change. This includes the presentation of a tool to facilitate risk analysis and land use assessment to prepare for an audit.

Day 2: Focus on the role of the supply chain elements that have to be covered by certification and the ISCC requirements for traceability and chain of custody.

Day 3: Focus on Greenhouse Gas (GHG) requirements, calculations and verifications
