Today the European Commission has published a draft Implementing Act on “rules to verify sustainability and greenhouse gas emissions saving criteria and low indirect land-use change-risk criteria” for stakeholder consultation. The draft Implementing Act aims to set out detailed rules for voluntary schemes to certify sustainable biofuels, bioliquids, and biomass fuels according to the REDII (Renewable Energy Directive (EU)2018/2001). Chapter V and Annex VIII of the draft Implementing Act set out rules for certifying low ILUC-risk biomass.
The documents can be downloaded via the European Commission website: http://ec.europa.eu/info/law/better-regulation/initiatives/isc-2021-03964_en.
The consultation is open until 27 July 2021 and feedback should be submitted via the European Commission website (link above).
