Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

Introduction

The objective of environmental technology verification (ETV) is to provide credible, reliable and

independent verification of the performance of environmental technologies. An environmental

technology is a technology that either results in an environmental added value or measures parameters

that indicate an environmental impact. Such technologies have an increasingly important role in

addressing environmental challenges and achieving sustainable development.

ETV contributes to protection and conservation of the environment by promoting and facilitating

market uptake of innovative environmental technologies, especially those that perform better than

relevant alternatives. ETV is particularly applicable to those environmental technologies whose

innovative features or performance cannot be fully assessed using existing standards. Through

the provision of objective evidence, ETV provides an independent and impartial confirmation of the

performance of an environmental technology based on reliable test data. ETV aims to strengthen the

credibility of new, innovative technologies by supporting informed decision-making among interested

parties.

ETV was established in the United States in 1995, and similar programmes were later introduced in

other countries, including Canada, several European Union member states, Japan, South Korea and the

Philippines. The performance of many environmental technologies has since been verified in these

countries under ETV programmes established at either the national or international level. Interest in

joint, mutually recognized verifications performed under different ETV programmes has increased

over the past decade. In 2008, the International Working Group on ETV (IWG-ETV), composed of

international experts representing institutions operating an ETV scheme in Canada, the United States,

Japan, South Korea, the Philippines and the European Union, was established with the aim of exploring

ways to accelerate international harmonization and mutual recognition of ETV programmes. The

IWG-ETV reached a consensus that standardization of the ETV process by means of an International

Standard is an appropriate way to establish the credibility and robustness of ETV world-wide.

4 General principles and requirements
4.1 Principles
4.1.1 General

The purpose of environmental technology verification is to provide a credible and impartial account

of the performance of environmental technologies. Environmental technology verification is based

on a number of principles to ensure that verifications are performed and reported accurately, clearly,

unambiguously and objectively.
4.1.2 Factual approach

Verification statements are based on factual and relevant evidence confirming objectively the

performance of environmental technologies.
4.1.3 Sustainability

Environmental technology verification is a tool that supports sustainability by providing credible

information on the performance of environmental technologies.
4.1.4 Transparency and credibility

Environmental technology verification is based on reliable test results and robust procedures. The

process is facilitated such that, to the greatest extent possible, methods and data are fully disclosed and

reports are clear, complete, objective and useful to the interested parties.
4.1.5 Flexibility

To maximize the utility of results, environmental technology verification allows for flexibility in the

specification of the performance parameters and test methods. This is achieved through a dialogue

between the applicant, verifier and interested parties.
4.2 Requirements

When verifying the performance of environmental technologies, the requirements of this document

and ISO/IEC 17020:2012 shall be applied and demonstrated.
Annex A shows the relationship between this document and ISO/IEC 17020:2012.
5 Environmental technology verification
5.1 General

This clause outlines key procedures of the environmental technology verification:

— application;
— pre-verification;
— verification;
— reporting;
— post-verification.
Unless specified otherwise, these procedures are performed by the verifier.

environmental impacts;

6) information on significant environmental impacts of the technology proposed for verification

and its environmental added value, if applicable.

c) performance claim including a proposed set of performance parameters and their numerical values

to be verified;

d) relevant existing test data and methods for acquiring these data that were applied to support the

performance claim;

e) any relevant legal requirements, or standards related to the technology and its use;

f) if relevant, a statement that the technology adheres to applicable regulatory requirements;
