Proposing a technology for verification

The ETV pilot programme provides for third-party verification, on a voluntary basis, of the performance claims made by technology manufacturers in business-to-business relations. The end product is a Statement of Verification, summarising the actual performance of the verified technology as well as the results of the tests performed. With proof of performance credibly assured, innovations can expect an easier market access and/or a larger market share and the technological risk is reduced for technology purchasers.

The ETV pilot programme is open to environmental technologies ready for the market and showing a potential for innovation, while providing environmental benefits in three technology areas:

  • Water treatment and monitoring (for example: monitoring of water quality, treatment of drinking water and of waste water)
  • Materials, waste and resources (for example: separation and sorting of solid waste, recycling of materials, end-of-life products and chemicals, products made of biomass)
  • Energy technologies (for example: renewable sources of energy, energy from waste, energy efficiency technologies)

To know more about the ETV pilot programme, how it works and relevant contacts in Member States, please have a look at:

Technology companies interested to have an environmental technology verified under ETV should contact a Verification Body. They can be contacted in order to plan or to begin the verification procedure for a new technology. Contact details of Verification Bodies are available on the new ETV website on this page.
