Providing Brazil with the skills to accredit climate change schemes

Services provided

Accreditation | Certification

UKAS has partnered with the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office to deliver a series of workshops in support of the implementation of greenhouse gas emissions trading in Brazil. Inmetro (the Brazilian National Institute of Metrology, Quality and Technology) was in the process of implementing certification schemes that support emissions trading and regarded UK expertise as world-class in this arena.

The training involved building up their competence levels in ISO 14064 (on how greenhouse gas emissions can be measured and reported) and ISO 14065 (on the requirements for greenhouse gas verification bodies).

The certification of environmental activities has been vital in giving confidence to all the parties in Brazil who rely upon greenhouse gas emissions assertions or claims.
