Environmental Technologies Verification (ETV) System

It is a new tool supporting the implementation of innovative environmental technologies into market practice. At present, on the one hand, research and development works offer a number of novel solutions favouring improvement of the status of the environment, good for human health as well as profitable in economic terms. On the other, companies are not very interested in the implementation of such solutions for one simple reason – they are new and not yet tested and, as such, they are burdened with a certain risk.
The ETV system helps to check, in an independent and objective manner, whether the performance parameters declared by the supplier of an innovative environmental technology are true and based on reliable data obtained in research. Verification is carried out by specialised and independent Verification Bodies. As a result of the verification the supplier is presented with a Verification Certificate attesting to the fact that the performance parameters declared by the supplier for a given technology are reliable and based in scientific grounds.
Currently the European ETV system is being implemented as a pilot programme with the participation of few EU countries, including Poland.
