This means we are experts who:

  • can handle and sample huge amounts of complex data across global, multi-sited companies
  • know the EU ETS rules and regulations inside out
  • will complete your emissions verification quickly and efficiently, reducing the risk of late reporting and penalties
  • can explain compliance procedures for both small and large emitters within the EU ETS verification scope

Stationary Operators

At Lucideon we offer independent third-party verification of Greenhouse Gas emissions for companies that fall under the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS). Since 2005 it has been a mandatory requirement for companies who fall under EU ETS to report annual emissions data - data which must be independently verified.

Lucideon is now accredited to ISO 17029:2019/ISO 14065:2020 to provide global verification of GHG emissions data for the EU Emissions Trading scheme. We have RvA (Dutch Accreditation Council) ) accreditation for EU ETS covering Ireland and the rest of Europe. [Note that the Irish accreditation body INAB is working with RvA towards being an accreditation body for EU ETS in the future].

With industry-leading experience and accredited by RvA, Lucideon provides:

  • Annual Emissions Verification
    We will develop a tailored verification plan so that your installation's annual emissions are verified quickly and accurately, allowing emissions data to be reported on time and efficiently.
  • Split Verification
    By spreading verification across the year and reviewing data centrally, we can identify potential issues early, minimising the risk of non-compliance and ensuring that verification can be carried out cost-effectively and with minimum disruption to you.
  • ALDR (Activity Level Data Report) Verification
    This is verification of Heat and Product data to enable the site to obtain free allowances. ALDR verification can be complex and poor verification can be costly as the exercise determines what free allowances a site can obtain. An experienced verifier is a critical part of the regulator-operator-auditor loop to help you through the process. This service incorporates Baseline data verification (Formerly "NIMS") and New Entrant emissions for those sites expanding or starting up.
  • Site Closure Verification
    Lucideon performs 'site closure' verification for sites that require verification of items to leave a mandatory scheme. Lucideon has the capacity to provide verification at short notice to the timeframe your Competent Authority sets.

We offer:

  • Single Site Verification
    For single-sited companies or multi-sited companies where sites operate independently.
  • Multi Site Verification
    For companies with common reporting, across sites within one or more countries. Here a central data verification at head office is accompanied by compliance visits to the actual sites. This approach has been adopted by many large companies AND trade associations who manage carbon reporting for their clients.
  • Remote Verification
    Lucideon has perfected an unrivalled system for remote verification. Clients in the offshore industry have benefited from this for several years and now other installations may also be eligible. For some classes of installation there is the potential to waive site visits during Phase IV of EU ETS. For those clients with suitable installations Lucideon will work with them through the process of applying for site visit waivers which involves a detailed risk assessment.
