- all economic operators considered as interface or transporter within the meaning of the abovementioned regulations
- Processors of intermediate products (e.g. oil mills in the supply chain; rapeseed oil->rapeseed oil->biodiesel)
-> from the collection of biomass at home or abroad via trade and logistics to final processing
Worldwide demand for biofuels is rising – but at the same time, natural landscapes and biodiversity should remain intact. Certification by TÜV NORD testifies to sustainable production of biofuels for vehicles and other applications as required by EU legislation. This means that certified organisations are able to continue marketing biomass and its end products as biofuel in the EU and can benefit from competitive advantages through the provisions of the German Renewable Energy Sources Act and the Energy Taxation Act.
TÜV NORD CERT certifies based on the requirements of the ISCC DE, ISCC EU and REDcert certification systems
We offer three corresponding certifications on an international basis: according to EU Directive 2009/28/EC on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources, the Biofuel Sustainability Ordinance and also the Biomass Electricity Sustainability Ordinance. The certifications are directed towards all economic operators who are considered to be “interfaces” or “transporters” in the sense of the standards and regulations – from recording of the biomass in Germany or abroad, through trading and logistics up to final processing. Within the auditing framework, compliance with the rules of the relevant certification system with regard to manufacture, transportation, storage and processing of the biomass is assessed at intervals of maximum twelve months.
TÜV NORD CERT is recognised by the Federal Office for Agriculture and Food (BLE).
