The Thematic Working groups are the operational sub-unit of the Stakeholder Platform. They contributed regularly and more directly to the development of the GO scheme and provide recommendations for the GO scheme pilot.

 Stakeholder platform entities role and composition

SP entitities roles

The Stakeholder Platform is composed of 4 WGs, representative of all actors across the GO value Chain. Working groups (WG) are an integral part of the Stakeholder Platform and the CertifHy project. Coordinated by project members, they will be consulted to provide input on specific issues within their remit.

WG 1 – Guarantee of Origin Scheme & Procedures

The role of Working Group 1 is to contribute to the design of the overall GO scheme. This implies providing information on how (other) GO schemes function, what documents need to be developed to ensure the scheme is functional,etc... Part of Working Group 1’s role is therefore to ensure that the proposed GO scheme is compatible with current and upcoming standards in terms of structure and content.
