To obtain certification according to REDcert, you must first register with REDcert and contact a suitable certification agency. The initial certification then consists of an analysis of the input materials used or planned, conclusion of a contract, data compilation, certification audit and, if necessary, optimisation measures and follow-up checks. This process takes about 3 to 4 months in total, depending on the scope. Most of the time is spent on the preparation of the audit. This lead time can usually be reduced by careful planning. We are happy to support you in this. The audit on your plant itself usually takes only 1-3 days.
Important: In order to be able to complete the certification by the introduction of the CO₂ levy in Germany on 01.01.2021, plant operators should allow sufficient time for the extensive document procurement and possible optimisation measures. In addition, the limited number of auditors and an increasing demand may lead to delays. We therefore recommend starting certification as early as possible.
