Environmental Technology Verification (ETV)
WHAT IS ETV?
Environmental Technology Verification is an International Standard (BS EN ISO 14034) developed with the objective of providing credible, reliable and independent verification of environmental technologies which have an impact or added value for the environment. Addressing such issues and challenges is increasingly important for achieving sustainable development.
James Hutton Limited are the second UK based organisation to offer ETV reports on environmental technologies in the United Kingdom. Proving the performance of new technologies can be challenging for small and medium sized enterprises and ETV can provide a solution to this.
WHO NEEDS THIS SERVICE?
For technology producers, ETV provides credibility and assurance on their products and claims while for purchasers, it guarantees selection of the best fitted eco-technology and helps determine the performance of the eco-technology in accordance with policies and regulations. Gaining an international standard will enable increased trade in an international market, reduce the duplication of testing data, enhance the usage of innovations to respond to climate change and global environmental challenges and ensure the continued collaboration on the development of future international technologies.
