The Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) pilot programme helps innovative environmental technologies to reach the market thanks to third party validation of the performance claims put forward by technology manufacturers. The end product is a"Statement of Verification", which ascertains a technology’s performance and differentiates it from that of competitors, reducing the risk to investors and purchasers of new technologies. The periodic ETV newsletter will keep you informed on the progress and latest results of the ETV pilot programme. It includes information on the Verification Bodies, the functioning of the ETV programme, and the latest technology verifications. The newsletter also features short articles, interviews, as well as the latest ETV news and events.
