This document contains general principles and requirements for the competence, consistent operation and impartiality of bodies performing validation/verification as conformity assessment activities.

Bodies operating according to this document can provide validation/verification as first party, second party as well as third party activity. Bodies can be validation bodies only, verification bodies only, or provide both activities.

This document is applicable to validation/verification bodies in any sector, providing confirmation that claims are either plausible with regards to the intended future use (validation) or truthfully stated (verification). However, results of other conformity assessment activities (e.g. testing, inspection and certification) are not considered to be subject to validation/verification according to this document. Neither are situations where validation/verification activities are performed as steps within another conformity assessment process.

This document is applicable to any sector, in conjunction with sector specific programmes that contain requirements for validation/verification processes and procedures.

This document can be used as a basis for accreditation by accreditation bodies, peer assessment within peer assessment groups, or other forms of recognition of validation/verification bodies by international or regional organizations, governments, regulatory authorities, programme owners, industry bodies, companies, clients or consumers.

This document specifies principles and requirements for bodies performing validation and verification of environmental information.

Any programme requirements related to bodies are additional to the requirements of this document.

NOTE This document contains generic requirements and is neutral with regard to the validation/ verification programme in operation. Requirements of the applicable programmes are additional to the requirements of this document.

This document provides guidelines to assist organizations in establishing, documenting, implementing, maintaining and continually improving material circulation in their design and development in a systematic manner, using an environmental management system (EMS) framework.

These guidelines are intended to be used by those organizations that implement an EMS in accordance with ISO 14001. The guidelines can also help in integrating material circulation strategies in design and development when using other management systems. The guidelines can be applied to any organization regardless of its size or activity.

This document provides guidelines for design strategies on material circulation to achieve the material efficiency objectives of an organization, by focusing on the following aspects:

— Type and quantity of materials in products

— Product lifetime extension

— Recovery of products, parts, and materials

In design and development, many aspects are considered, such as safety, performance, and cost. Although important, they are not addressed in this document.

This document specifies a method for the detection and identification of microalgae, macroalgae (seaweed), cyanobacteria and Labyrinthulomycetes by using morphological methods and/or molecular methods.

The morphological methods in this document are applicable to harvested wet biomass and to harvested dried unground biomass from microalgae, macroalgae, cyanobacteria and Labyrinthulomycetes that have been grown and/or harvested for further processing and/or use.

The molecular methods in this document are applicable to harvested wet biomass and to harvested dried and/or ground biomass from microalgae, macroalgae, cyanobacteria and Labyrinthulomycetes that have been grown and/or harvested for further processing and/or use.

This document describes a toolbox, consisting of several identification methods that can be chosen according to the applicability and purpose of the identification:

— morphological methods based on observation and referring to scientific literature on taxonomy:

— macroscopic observation;

— light microscopic observation;

— molecular methods of sequencing and blasting of sequences:

— 16S-rDNA sequencing;

— 18S-rDNA sequencing;

— rbcL DNA sequencing;

— ITS sequencing;

— COX 1 gene sequencing;

— tufA gene sequencing.

This document does not deal with genetic purity of the biomass or quantification of the identified taxa.
