ISO 14065 General Principles and Requirements for Bodies Validating and Verifying Environmental Information
ISO 14065 specifies principles and requirements for bodies performing validation and verification of environmental information statements.
This standard is a sector application of ISO/IEC 17029. It references the requirements of ISO/IEC 17029 and also includes specific requirements related to bodies that validate or verify environmental information.
Bodies operating in accordance with this document can be first-party, second-party or third-party bodies and can provide validation only, verification only, or provide both validation and verification, and perform agreed-upon procedures (AUP).
This standard provides program owners, regulators and accreditation bodies with a basis for assessing and recognizing the competence of validation and verification bodies. It can also be used in other ways, such as in peer assessment within groups of validation/verification bodies or between such groups.
