Certification bodies: Recognition - according to Biomass Electricity Sustainability Ordinance

Fuels on the market in Germany can only have biofuels or biogas counted against their quota obligation or receive tax relief if they can prove that biofuels or biogas meet the sustainability criteria resulting from Directive 2009/28/EC on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources. This also applies to liquid biofuel for electricity generation, if economic operators wish to receive support under the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG 2014). Proof of sustainability can be provided through so-called national systems or under voluntary schemes of the EU Commission. Data on sustainability shall be provided by economic operators to the Member States concerned.

Data relevant to the German market must be entered by economic operators in the competent body's state-owned web application Sustainable Biomass Systems (Nabisy) by economic operators in the Regulation on Requirements for Sustainable Production of Biofuels (Biokraft-NachV) and The German Regulation on Requirements for the Sustainable Production of Biofuels (Biokraft-NachV) and the Requirements for a Sustainable Production of Liquid Biomass for Electricity Generation (BioSt-NachV). The Nabisy web application can be accessed directly by the main customs offices and the biofuel quota office, the network operators and the competent authorities of the other Member States. In addition, Nabisy also serves as an instrument for the competent body to prepare the annual experience and evaluation report for the Federal Government and the EU Commission.

Nabisy provides proof of the sustainability and management of a mass-balance system for biofuels and biogas and for bioliquids in accordance with Directive 2009/28/EC.
