Advanced National Technical Training Programme on Accreditation in the scope of the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) was organised in Belgrade on 12-13 April 2016, with the general objective to provide the government authorities in Serbia with an improved technical understanding of the EU requirements and practices of EU ETS verifier accreditation.
The training provided in-depth insights in the regulation and practicalities of ETS accreditation. And it also provided an opportunity to discuss the EU ETS accreditation regulations, the ISO 14065 and ISO/IEC 17011 requirements, the accreditation process and all aspects that a national accreditation body will need to deal with under an ETS system. Insights were given into aspects of the verification of an emission report based on the approved Monitoring Plan that have implications for the witnessing of verifiers by the National Accreditation Body. All technical training should optimally prepare the staff of the Ministry and the ATS for their task to act as the national ETS accreditation body (ATS) and overseeing the tasks of the accreditation body (Ministry).
