Greenhouse Gas Monitoring Standards Greenhouse Gas Monitoring Standards address the measurement and reporting techniques dealing with greenhouse gas emissions. Methods of design, development, and administration of reporting techniques, principles of data assessment, and extensive testing and verification of assertions are the focal points of these standards. Included here are recommended practices for the enhancement of greenhouse emission reduction and removal, as well as the planning and management of greenhouse gas projects involving the identification of greenhouse gas sources, sampling and monitoring of gas emissions, and the reporting of greenhouse gas inventory.

ISO 14064 - Greenhouse Gases Package

ISO 14064-1:2006, ISO 14064-2:2006, ISO 14064-3:2006, ISO 14065:2013 and ISO 14066:2011

The Greenhouse Gases Package provides specification with guidance at the organization and project level for quantifying, monitoring and reporting of greenhouse gas emission reductions or removal enhancements. The organization level applies to an organization's greenhouse gas inventory, which includes the requirements for the design, development, management and reporting of the inventory. The project level includes the requirements for planning a greenhouse gas project and identifying / selecting sources, sinks and reservoirs. Also additional information is provided in this package for validating and verifying greenhouse gas assertions and for use in accreditation or other forms of recognition. This package contains the following ISO documents: ISO 14064-1:2006, ISO 14064-2:2006, ISO 14064-3:2006, ISO 14065:2013 and ISO 14066:2011.


ISO 14064-1:2006

Greenhouse gases - Part 1: Specification with guidance at the organization level for quantification and reporting of greenhouse gas emissions and removals

ISO 14064-1:2006 specifies principles and requirements at the organization level for quantification and reporting of greehouse gas (GHG) emissions and removals. It includes requirements for the design, development, management, reporting and verification of an organization's GHG inventory.

This standard is also available from: BS  /  DIN  /  ON  /  SS


ISO 14064-2:2006

Greenhouse gases - Part 2: Specification with guidance at the project level for quantification, monitoring and reporting of greenhouse gas emission reductions or removal enhancements

ISO 14064-2:2006 specifies principles and requirements and provides guidance at the project level for quantification, monitoring and reporting of activities intended to cause greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions or removal enhancements. It includes requirements for planning a GHG project, identifying and selecting GHG sources, sinks and reservoirs relevant to the project and baseline scenario, monitoring, quantifying, documenting and reporting GHG project performance and managing data quality.

This standard is also available from: BS  /  DIN  /  ON  /  SS


ISO 14064-3:2006

Greenhouse gases - Part 3: Specification with guidance for the validation and verification of greenhouse gas assertions

ISO 14064-3:2006 specifies principles and requirements and provides guidance for those conducting or managing the validation and/or verification of greenhouse gas (GHG) assertions. It can be applied to organizational or GHG project quantification, including GHG quantification, monitoring and reporting carried out in accordance with ISO 14064-1 or ISO 14064-2. ISO 14064-3:2006 specifies requirements for selecting GHG validators/verifiers, establishing the level of assurance, objectives, criteria and scope, determining the validation/verification approach, assessing GHG data, information, information systems and controls, evaluating GHG assertions and preparing validation/verification statements.

ISO 14065:2013

Greenhouse gases - Requirements for greenhouse gas validation and verification bodies for use in accreditation or other forms of recognition

ISO 14065:2013 specifies principles and requirements for bodies that undertake validation or verification of greenhouse gas (GHG) assertions.

This standard is also available from: BS  /  DIN  /  ON  /  SS


ISO 14066:2011

Greenhouse gases - Competence requirements for greenhouse gas validation teams and verification teams

ISO 14066:2011 specifies competence requirements for validation teams and verification teams. ISO 14066:2011 complements the implementation of ISO 14065. ISO 14066:2011 is not linked to any particular greenhouse gas (GHG) programme. If a particular GHG programme is applicable, competence requirements of that GHG programme are additional to the requirements of ISO 14066:2011.

ISO 11771:2010

Air quality - Determination of time-averaged mass emissions and emission factors - General approach

ISO 11771:2010 specifies a generic method for the determination and the reporting of time-averaged mass emissions from a specific installation or of a family of installations (or common source type), using data collected by measurements, and by establishing: mass emission rates by the simultaneous measurement of concentration and gas flow, using standardized manual or automatic methods, and also the estimation of the uncertainty of the measurements; time-averaged mass emission rates using time series of mass emission rate values, their uncertainty characteristics, and also the determination of the expanded uncertainty of the average; time-averaged emission factors for a specific installation or of a family of installations and their associated uncertainty characteristics; a quality management system to assist the process of inventory quality assurance and verification. ISO 11771:2010 is applicable to the determination of emission factors for stationary sources including emissions from industrial processes where calculation from fuel and raw material is not practical, for greenhouse gases, and air pollutants including fine particulate material. ISO 11771:2010 does not address compliance monitoring in the context of emission control regulations. ISO 11771:2010 requires the use of measurement-based methods and calculation-based methods that use measurement data. It covers the planning and execution of the measurement programme to collect data, selection of sampling methods, calculation of results, estimation of uncertainty, determination of emission factors, and the reporting of information in a form that enables users to apply them. ISO 11771:2010 specifies how to: generate time-averaged mass emission rate data of a known quality, for a defined period of time, and a documented set of operational conditions; generate complete data sets representative of a known time period (i.e. a calendar year) by filling gaps in mass emission rate data series and combining data sets numerically; calculate emission factors for a known time period; calculate time-averaged emission factors of a known quality for a known source type. The measurement of emissions from vehicular, area or fugitive sources is not specifically covered. However, ISO 11771:2010 can be used for quantification of emission factors for those sources provided that measurements of emissions are available. ISO 11771:2010 does not explicitly include measurement procedures that are fully described in the referenced standards. Neither does it provide advice on the generation of activity statistics. ISO 11771:2010 is compatible with ISO 14064-1 and ISO 14064-3.
