Validation & Verification

Roster of Local Experts

The roster of local and technical experts is intended to serve as a resource for approved validation/verification bodies (VVBs) seeking to recruit or contract qualified individuals with knowledge of particular geographic contexts or expertise in specific plastic waste collection and/or recycling activities. The experts listed below have demonstrated to Verra that they have at least two years of experience in the category or categories listed. This roster is not exhaustive, and VVBs may recruit local or technical experts not included on the roster.

Please note that, in accordance with ISO 14065, VVBs are expected to perform an assessment of the independence and impartiality of the expert, considering the specific context of the project to be audited. Therefore, the inclusion of a party on this list does not relieve the VVB of its responsibility to conduct the necessary due diligence required for work that is outsourced or performed by a contractor. VVBs should adhere to their internal policies for assessing the suitability of an external expert.

Become an Expert

To apply to be on the Roster of Local Experts, individuals or organizations should complete the Expert Application Form and submit it to plasticstandard@nullverra.org. Experts are required to reapply every two years to maintain their status as an expert and to ensure that the information presented on the roster is current.
