In line with the proposal under Version 3 of the DoW CoP and following the findings of project audits, the EA & NRW have requested CL:AIRE bring forward the requirements for project teams to submit their Verification Reports to ensure the full DoW CoP process in complete, therefore from January 2018, there is a requirement for project teams to estimate the expected production date of the Verification Report and for this date to be entered into the Declaration.
A reminder email will be sent to the person identified in the Declaration if the initial due date specified is missed. Instructions in this email will indicate where to upload the Verification Report or, if it is not yet ready, to change the due date.
CL:AIRE understands that the due date may be difficult to estimate, however project teams should be reminded to maintain good levels of communications with CL:AIRE on expected progress by changing the due date.
If expected Verification Report production dates are missed and no communication is received from the project team, CL:AIRE will make contact with the named individual or organisation to request an update.
