SBP has today announced that the application for the approval of its current Standards under the recast EU Renewable Energy Directive 2018/2001 (REDII) has received a preliminary positive assessment from the European Commission.
The Commission expects the recognition of the first voluntary schemes to take place in the short term.
The SBP REDII Instruction Document is now being finalised and will be made available to Certificate Holders in January 2022.
Looking ahead, SBP has sought the views of its certified European End-users on how best to address the REDII requirements in its revised Standards, which will be published next year. Several models are under consideration.
Having heard from the European End-users, SBP is now consulting its certified Biomass Producers and Traders. Biomass Producers and Traders are invited to complete a short survey, which should take no longer than 15 minutes. Any feedback will be extremely helpful in finding the best way to serve those Certificate Holders wishing to conduct business in REDII-regulated markets.

The deadline for responses is Wednesday, 12 January 2022.
