» Expression of Interest – Forestry Commission Code of Good Practice for Forest Carbon Project

04 March, 2009

In anticipation of the publication by the Forestry Commission in March 2010 of a Code of Good Practice for Forest Carbon Projects, UKAS is inviting expressions of interest from UK based certification bodies to participate in a pilot programme for accredited certification of carbon sequestration projects. The pilot will provide the opportunity for certification bodies to achieve accreditation for certification of forest projects/scheme owners against the Code of Good Practice, a draft of which can be found at:

Expressions of interest should be sent to info@ukas.com marked for the attention of Navnit Gill and should arrive no later than 5pm on Monday 9 November 2009. On receipt of expressions of interest, UKAS and the Forestry Commission will provide further information on the application process for inclusion in the pilot, including details of a meeting for interested parties to be held in December 2009.
