This is the first edition of CAN/CSA-ISO 14066, Greenhouse gases - Competence requirements for greenhouse gas validation teams and verification teams, which is an adoption without modification of the identically titled ISO (International Organization for Standardization) Standard 14066 (first edition, 2011-04-15).
The ISO 14000 family of standards was developed by environmental experts from around the world, under the auspices of ISO Technical Committee 207. Canada plays a major role in this area. The Secretariat of ISO/TC 207 is held by CSA on behalf of Canada’s member body in ISO, the Standards Council of Canada.
This Standard was reviewed for Canadian adoption by the CSA Technical Committee on Climate Change, under the jurisdiction of the CSA Strategic Steering Committee on Business Management and Sustainability, and has been formally approved by the Technical Committee. This Standard has been approved as a National Standard of Canada by the Standards Council of Canada.
This International Standard specifies competence requirements for validation teams and verification teams.
This International Standard complements the implementation of ISO 14065.
This International Standard is not linked to any particular greenhouse gas (GHG) programme. If a particular GHG programme is applicable, competence requirements of that GHG programme are additional to the requirements of this International Standard.
NOTE Requirements for the management and support of personnel competence are specified in ISO 14065:2007, Clause 6.
