VERA Verification

VERA is a multinational collaboration between Denmark, The Netherlands and Germany for testing and verifying environmental technologies within the agricultural sector. The purpose of VERA is to enhance a well-functioning international market for environmental technologies to help solve the environmental challenges of agricultural production.

The framework for test and verification is based on test protocols that are developed, or in the process of being developed. Technologies that have been tested according to one of the VERA test protocols can obtain a VERA Verification Statement.A VERA Verification Statement secures documentation for the environmental efficiency and operational stability of a technology and is an important step when introducing a technology to the market.
