Greenhouse gas guarantee / certification bodies

Mongolian National Authority for Accreditation (MNAS) is the only Mongolian organization offering internationally recognized accreditation for greenhouse gas (GHG) validation and verification bodies. This program is for organizations that provide third-party validation or verification services for the reduction and removal of GHGs.

Requirements for MNAS’s accreditation program for greenhouse gas validation and verification bodies are defined in ISO 14065:2013. A new version of that standard, ISO 14065:2020, has published recently.

Scope of accreditation

The scopes of accreditation include the technical activities included in GHG emissions verification and GHG project validation and verification. They are grouped by:

  • Organizational Level Activities (Emissions), in the case of verification bodies, and
  • Project Level Activities (Reductions or Removals), for verification and/or validation

Note that organizations can apply for accreditation with SCC as a verifier, a validator, or both.
