Dutch Issuing Body changes certificate cancelation Rules

CertiQ, the appointed issuing body for the Netherlands, has changed some rules regarding the Guarantee of Origin (GO).  Most notably the automatic cancelation of a GO will take place 1-year following the production of the electricity and not 1-year following the issuance of the certificate.

Additional information in the CertiQ communication follows:

  • As of December certification of sustainable heat and non-renewables will begin within CertiQ.
  • CertiQ asked for participation in their sounding board from interested parties.
  • The service desk for CertiQ will be closed Friday, November 23rd due to preparations for the release of myCertiQ.

CertiQ mentioned that further questions can be directed to servicedesk@certiq.nl
