Templates for GHG Emissions Verification

Verification Statement Template

The Reporting Regulation requires that a verification statement be prepared based on procedures conducted by the verification body. It also requires that the verification statement, submitted as part of an emission report, be done in this form.

Conflict of Interest Report Template

Verification bodies must demonstrate that the potential for a threat to independence, that could influence the objectivity of the verification, is insignificant. To support this, all verification statements must include a Conflict of Interest Report. To assist verification bodies, the Ministry has developed a Conflict of Interest Report Template. The template is intended to provide verification bodies with a suggested structure for documenting their assessment of threats to independence, strategies for mitigating threats to independence and report on implementation of these strategies. While it is preferred that the Ministry template be used, verification bodies may use a different format for the report.
