International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC)

ISCC is a certification scheme developed in Germany for renewable energy and materials. An ISCC certification is only granted if full traceability and sustainability claim is guaranteed for raw materials in every conceivable sector/branch. Normec QS is recognized by ISCC to carry out the audit and certification for you.

Global recognition

ISCC has gained worldwide recognition in many countries and therefore gained great international fame and many applications. Complete traceability is required before the ISCC certificate is issued. In practice, this means that both suppliers, producers and customers must cooperate or must be ISCC certified themselves.

Normec QS assesses during the audit on several components:

  • origin and traceability
  • mass balance
  • reduction of greenhouse gas emissions
  • environmental requirements (for cultivation and agricultural waste streams)

Different schedules

With regard to applications , ISCC has two forms of certification:

  • ISCC EU: intended for biofuels and energy in the EU, recognised by the European Commission (EC) for the Renewable Energy Directive (RED II)
  • ISCC PLUS: intended for food, feed, bio-based products, energy and biofuels outside Europe and/or outside scope of the RED II

An ISCC certificate has a validity of 1 year. Detailed information can be found on the ISCC website.
