Designated verified carbon standard projects

26 August 2016

ERF

The method sets out the detailed rules for implementing and monitoring offsets projects that were previously validated under the Verified Carbon Standard (the VCS) and implemented the approved VCS methodology VM0010—Methodology for improved forest management: Conversion from logged to protected forest (the VCS method). Other projects, including projects that protect native forests not validated under the VCS are not eligible under this method.

The designated verified carbon standard method was open to projects that were registered under the VCS before the Carbon Farming Initiative Amendment Act 2014 commenced and applied to be registered under the Emissions Reduction Fund before 30 June 2015.

Method variations

Variations to methods are developed for a range of reasons including:

  • to implement an ERAC decision to extend the crediting period of a method
  • to ensure methods continue to operate as originally intended
  • to account for technological advances that enable new measurement approaches.

Methods being varied or methods under review are published on the Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water (DCCEEW) website.

The method variations page provides additional information about how a method variation might affect an existing project.
