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 Programme is set up foreseeing the existence of Technical Working Groups (TWGs), one for each technology area active under the Pilot Programme. These are chaired by the JRC and composed by Commission Invited Experts and by Experts representing the Verification Bodies with the overall aim to harmonise and exchange good practices among member states. ETV has a logo inherited from previous ETV FP7 projects, but it is not an official logo of the European Commission. ETV is not a certification nor a labialisation scheme. Therefore the logo should be used in well-defined conditions, specifying clearly what has been verified. This document defines and clarifies all elements relative to the logo and its use: design specifications, uses of the logo under different marketing circumstances and communication purposes. This document, adopted on the date by the TWGs on 08/04/2015, is a guidance document, with the meaning given in the General Verification Protocol of the EU ETV pilot programme (version 1.1), 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 also deliverable 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” as modified by amendment 1 signed 16/06/2014.
