Certification bodies Recognition according to the Biofuel Sustainability Ordinance

The Biokraft-NachV implements Directive 2009/28/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 April 2009. This defines the recognition of the fulfillment of the legal obligation under the Federal Immission Control Act to place a certain minimum proportion of biofuels on the market in the course of a calendar year as well as the tax relief capacity of biofuels according to the Energy Tax Act.

Certification bodies monitor compliance with the sustainability regulations of economic operators in the field of bioenergy and issue certificates to so-called interfaces.

Certification bodies are recognised for this purpose on request.
