Abstract: Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) is a new tool enabling the verification of the performance claims put forward by developers of innovative environmental technologies. The EU-ETV programme, launched in 2011 by DG-ENV, is supported by Technical Working Groups (TWGs), one for each technology area active under the Pilot programme. These TWGs are chaired by the JRC and composed by Commission Invited Experts and by Experts representing the Verification Bodies (VBs) with the overall aim to harmonise and exchange good practices. The present document provides guidance to help Verification Bodies assessing whether the proposed technology fits within the definition provided in the GVP for "innovative environmental technologies". This document, adopted on the on the 26/01/2016 by the TWGs, is a guidance document, with the meaning given in the General Verification Protocol of the EU ETV pilot programme (version 1.2), Section A.II.4.3. It has been produced by the EU ETV Technical Working Groups, chaired by the JRC, under the auspices of DG Environment. This document is part of deliverable 2.1.5 under the Administrative Arrangement 070307/2011/630755/F4 between DG ENV and JRC (ref JRC No. 32937), “Scientific and technical support for the implementation of the EU Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) pilot programme” (second amendment).
