Consultations for stakeholder input as a foundation for I-REC governance

Stakeholder input is an invaluable resource to ensure the fair and transparent creation of all governance documents, policies, and processes. We invite all stakeholders to share comments, questions, concerns, and suggestions through organized consultation(s) or to the I-REC Standard secretariat independently.

An overview of historical consultations can be seen here.

Ongoing Consultation for the International Attribute Tracking Standard

The consultation process will be conducted in phases from April 2021 through the next 9-12 months, focus on a specific portion of the Standard or associated governance documents, and be coordinated through direct communication such as e-mails, meetings, newsletters, as well as being made available here with links to the associated surveys and forms.

The first consultation phase will focus on content from chapters 1-5 of the Standard.

In this first consultation form, we will ask about aspects such as the general form of the Standard, the definitions and principles, and if the purpose of the Standard is well understood.

The second consultation phase will focus on specific content from chapter 8 of the Standard.

In this second consultation form, we will ask about aspects such as the general responsibilities of Platform Operators, the guidelines for Platform development, infrastructure, implementation, and management. It is important for those who respond to this consultation to also review the Platform Guidance Document and Platform Preliminary Report.

The International REC Standard Foundation (I-REC Standard) and Evident, as Accredited Code Manager, have published the I-REC for electricity Product Code (I-REC(E) Product Code).
