SBP has today announced that SCS Global Services (SCS), USA has become the fourth ‘SBP-approved’ Certification Body. SCS has provided evidence that it meets the SBP requirements regarding its existing accreditations and has demonstrated sufficient resource and competence to manage the SBP certification programme.
The SBP certification programme enables producers of woody biomass to demonstrate that they source their raw material responsibly and that it complies with the regulatory, including sustainability, requirements applicable to power generators burning woody biomass to produce energy.
SCS has been approved for worldwide certification of Biomass Producers, typically pellet or wood chip mills, and the biomass supply chain, for example, components of the downstream supply chain, such as trade, transport and processing that require Chain of Custody certification.
Carsten Huljus, Chief Executive Officer of SBP, commented, “The SBP approval process is both rigorous and robust, the final stage of which is a review by an independent Technical Committee of the whole assessment process and a recommendation for approval.
“I am pleased to confirm that SCS Global Services has achieved SBP approval”.
