CDM Executive Board Calls for Comments on “Elaboration of CDM Accreditation Requirements”

29 September 2008: The Executive Board of the Clean

Development Mechanism (CDM) has launched a call for public comments on the

draft document “Elaboration of CDM Accreditation Requirements,” from 29

September 2008 to 27 October 2008.

The draft document, contained in annex 1 of

the 26th Progress Report of the CDM Accreditation Panel, details the

requirements for the accreditation of applicant and designated operational

entities providing CDM services for validation and/or

verification/certification, and the provisions for meeting these requirements.

The document is intended to elaborate the CDM accreditation requirements for

application to the entities and to provide a basis for their assessment by the

CDM Assessment Team for the purpose of CDM accreditation activities. At its

42nd meeting, the Board decided to make the draft available for public comment

and requested the UNFCCC Secretariat to submit a revised draft document, taking

into consideration the comments received, for consideration at its 44th

meeting. [Call for Public
