URS Verification Pvt Ltd


Verification is assessing and verifying the implementation of project activity and the steps taken to report emission reductions comply with the scheme criteria. Evaluate the data recorded and stored as per the monitoring methodology. The approach for project verification shall be in line with the latest version of manual.


  • Following methods of verification, the verification is carried out ensuring below, but not limited to:
  • Established and registered project design document and corresponding validation report and conformity with actual project activity,
  • Previous verification reports, if any,
  •  Compliance of monitoring plan against applied monitoring methodology,
  • Compliance of monitoring with monitoring plan,
  • Assessment of data and calculation of greenhouse gas emission reductions,
  • Evaluation, whether the reported GHG emission reduction data are accurate, complete, consistent, transparent and free of material errors or omission.


3.01 Document Review:


The document review for the validation shall be involving:

  • A review of data and information presented to verify their completeness,
  • A review of monitoring plan and monitoring methodology,
  • An evaluation of data management and the quality assurance and quality control system in the context of their influence on the generation and reporting of emission reductions,
  • Project design document, including baseline study, methodology etc


3.02   On-site Assessment & Interview:


Following desk review, team shall carry out onsite review, interviews etc to assess the GHG assertion in conformity with the requirement of applicable standard.URSV carries out verification as per the requirements specified by the latest version of the VVM – Validation and Verification Manual .


  • Onsite interviews, telephone or email interviews are conducted with data-coordinators, key personnel at site, project proponent etc.
  • Such follow ups include interview with relevant stakeholders and interested parties etc.
  • Cross checks between information provided in the monitoring report and data from other sources
  • Check of the monitoring equipment,
  • A review of calculations and assumptions made in determining the GHG data and emission reductions
  • An identification of quality control and quality assurance procedures in place to prevent or identify and correct any errors or omissions in the reported monitoring parameters,
  • The team shall assess the methodology, derived based on project activity, objective, criteria, level of assurance, materiality, project boundaries, baseline scenario for the project including selection and quantification of GHG sources, sinks and reservoirs applicable to it.


3.03 Clarifications and Corrections:


  • If during the verification of a project activity, issues are identified related to monitoring, implementation or operation of proposed scheme activity, that could impair the capacity of proposed project activity to achieve emission reduction or influence the reporting of emission reductions, these issues shall be identified, discussed and concluded in the verification report.
  • In case of verification projects, corrective action request (CAR) shall be raised if one of the following occurs:
  • Non conformities with the monitoring plan or methodology are found in monitoring and reporting, or if the evidence provided to prove conformity is insufficient,
  • Mistakes have been made in applying assumptions, data or calculations of the emission reductions that will impair the estimates of emission reduction,
  • Issues identified in FAR during validation to be verified during verification have not been resolved by the PP,
  • Clarification Request (CL’s) in verification: A CL is issued where:  
  • The information is insufficient or not clear enough to determine whether the applicable scheme requirement, has been met.
  • Forward Action Request (FAR) in verification: A FAR shall be issued when,
  • There is a requirement of attention of issues in next stage or near future.
  • The raised CAR’s/CL’s/FAR shall be communicated to the client and shall be due responded. At maximum 60 days shall be given to the project proponent time to respond to the CAR’s/CR’s.
  • The CARs and CLs shall be ‘closed out’ only if the PP modifies the project design, rectify the PDD or provide adequate additional explanation or evidence that satisfies concerns raised. If not done, the activity is not recommended for next stage.


3.04 Verification Report:


Verification team will produce a draft verification report that summarizes the findings. It will include general discussion and clearly state the conclusion related to each of general issues required for successful verification. A section of draft verification report will identify where URSV team still has concerns, either because of lack of information or because of mistakes, limitations or gap identified during review process.


Upon receipt of response and comment from project representative of clarification and corrective action requests, the draft report will be revised to finalize the report.
