LRQA offers EU ETS verification services

Emissions management is playing an increasingly critical role in worldwide efforts to control and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to tackle global warming. Verification of your organisation's emission of greenhouse gases by LRQA will mean that you will be able to demonstrate how you are meeting emission targets, allowing you to make the most of emissions trading schemes, protect your financial position and business reputation.


We undertake accredited EU Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) verifications across the European Union including annual verifications, new entrant reserve applications, closures and rationalisations and Phase II gap analysis and support. Our specific focus on phase verification means we can minimise the installation's risk of non compliance with the Scheme. Normally a two-stage verification, our staged approach aims to reduce the disturbance to you.

We also have the expertise to help aircraft operators meet their obligations under the recent EU Aviation Regulation. The regulations require aircraft operators to monitor and report verified data on CO2 emissions arising from aviation activities on intra-EU flights and all flights entering and departing from EU airports. This EU Regulation (Directive 2008/101/EC) is an amendment to the EU Emissions Trading Scheme.

Our verifiers at the LRQA Aviation Centre are well placed to help you meet your obligations under this legislation. We were part of the consortium working for the European Commission to develop the monitoring, reporting and verification guidelines for aviation’s inclusion within the EU ETS. We have already performed a gap analysis at a major airline to help them to mitigate the risk of any non-compliance before final verification.

We have a dedicated website giving latest news, scheme timelines and service information which is regularly updated at:  Alternatively you can call us directly on 024 7688 2343 or freephone 0800 783 2179.
