CDM ACCREDITATION PROCEDURE AREAS OF IMPROVEMENT 1st Sustainable DevelopmentMechanism Joint Coordination Workshop 24-25 March 2012 Laura Severino
It is a procedure by which an authoritative body gives formal recognition that a body or person (DOE) is competent to carry out specific tasks; Accreditation is an international recognition that provides assurance to the public. ACCREDITATION
The accreditation The regular on-site The re-accreditation The spot-check The policy framework The performance CMP CDM-AP CDM-AT ACTORS CDM-EB ACCREDITATION PROCEDURE SECRETARIAT STANDARD
ELEMENTS OF ASSESSMENT Document/Desk review by a CDM-AT of the adequacy of the documented system; On-site assessment by a CDM-AT to evaluate the implementation of the system; Observation of the verification assessment carried out by the DOEs team at the project site and evaluating conformity of the DOEs draft report that is based only on the documentary evidence; Continuous monitoring of the performance of the DOE in conducting validation and verification activities.
STRENGHTS The accreditation process contributes significantly to support DOE in improving the quality and performance; The thresholds can be seen as scores which indicated the performance and the extent of compliance with a standard; Accreditation provides an opportunity and incentive for self-improvement; The system is very transparent; The output of the DOE performance monitoring can provide appropriate inputs into future revisions of the CDM requirements, standards, and methodologies.
WEAKNESS, AREAS OF IMPROVEMENTS The system is complex and time consuming; Instead the recent improvements of the accreditation procedure, projects are checked at 100%; Still focused on control rather than quality enhancement; Sometimes the DOE have experienced difficulties in implementing Corrective actions for the Non Conformities identified by the CDM-AT; Many checks from different bodies/entity on the same project can generate inhomogeneity of judgment.
