COVID-19 INTERIM MEASURES
Current interim measures have been extended from 30/06/2022 to 31/12/2022 only for those projects which are located in a place where COVID-19 related restrictions still exist.
To apply these interim measures the project developer must provide evidence to confirm that regulations or other restrictions indeed prohibited the project from complying with Gold Standard for the Global Goal requirements and/or implementing the registered monitoring plan. As this is an extension to the previous rule update, no grace period applies.
IMPORTANT DATE: Deviations already approved with an earlier version of the COVID-19 interim measures will end on 12 September 2022. After this date, the project developer shall demonstrate compliance with GS4GG requirements and/or a registered monitoring plan for any kind of submission for certification as per the normal process.
Please make note of this date, as it may affect planned activities where existing COVID measures were considered or being applied.
