Verification Process and Schedule

The verification process typically includes the following steps:

  • Conflict of Interest Review
  • Verification Plan
  • Site Visit
  • Sampling Plan
  • Data Checks
  • Verification Report
  • Verification Statement

Depending upon the scope of the project, the verification process takes 8 to 12 weeks to complete.

To control costs whenever possible we can tailor the verification process to meet your budget. Strategies to control costs include:

  • Providing "limited assurance" instead of "reasonable assurance";
  • Limiting the boundary of a project to a specific facility;
  • Doing "desk audits" instead of site visits;
  • Limiting the number of site visits;
  • Limiting the scope of the data to be verified (i.e. greenhouse gas emissions only)
