Methodologies

Methodology Experts

Under the VCS Program, validation/verification bodies (VVBs) assess proposed methodologies for conformance with VCS Program requirements and scientific best practice. The VVB conducting a methodology assessment must hire a methodology expert if assessing a standardized method or an Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU) methodology.

 

Become a Methodology Expert

Methodology experts are selected by a VCS Program methodology expert assessment panel. Applications are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
