Sector and Methodology

From the next screen, you select sector and methodology.

You need to select the most applicable sector that applies to the project activities.

If you're not following a pre-approved methodology, you select the sector that you believe is most relevant for the project activities. The relevant sector will be determined during validation.

When you have selected the primary sector, applicable methodologies are listed as relevant to that sector in the drop-down list of methodologies.

If no applicable methodologies apply to the project activities, you're developing a new methodology, or you're following a methodology that is not listed under the ICR approved methodologies, you shall select ISO 14064-2.

Deviations from methodology

If the project is applying a methodology and deviates from it you need to disclose information about the deviation.

For the registration process, you also have the option to choose Project draft.

When selecting the applicable status please consider the difference in documentation and information needed for each status, outlined in ICR process requirements.

If you're only starting the registration and you don't have all the information yet available, please select Project Draft. You can change at later stages.


When you have completed providing the basic information, you will be directed to your new project home screen. From the home screen, you can continue providing more details about the project.
