ANSI Accreditation Program for Greenhouse Gas Validation/Verification Bodies

Accreditation for Product Certification Bodies

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) offers an accreditation program for organizations providing third-party validation/verification services for the reduction and removal of greenhouse gases (GHG).

The ANSI Accreditation Program for Greenhouse Gas Validation/Verification Bodies operates according to requirements defined in ISO 14065:2013, Greenhouse gases - Requirements for greenhouse gas validation and verification bodies for use in accreditation or other forms of recognition.
