Redesigned Canadian Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) Program Website will assist companies seeking to verify the performance capabilities of new technologies
GLOBE-Net, June 17, 2013 – GLOBE Performance Solutions (GPS), the official delivery agent for Canada’s Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) Program, has launched a new website to assist companies seeking to verify the performance capabilities of their new technologies.
GLOBE Performance Solutions, working closely with technology developers, suppliers, buyers, users and other industry and government stakeholders, provides a reliable and independent process for verifying the environmental performance claims associated with innovative technologies, processes and products.

“The expanding global demand for sustainable solutions is a major driver for integrating proven technology performance with responsible business practices,” said Dr. John D. Wiebe, President and Chief Operating Officer of the GLOBE Group, the parent organization to GLOBE Performance Solutions.
“More and more, investors, product developers and regulatory authorities are looking for independent verification of performance capabilities before making decisions to invest in or license the use of particular products, processes or technologies,” he added.
Verification Protocols On-Line
With its updated and streamlined interface, the ETV website provides clients with easy access to a full complement of documents and procedures on How to Verify Your Technology, including an online Pre-screening Application Form to initiate and accelerate the verification process.
Clients who have completed full verification of their technologies will have the opportunity to showcase their verified products or services under the online directory of currently verified technologies.
In addition to General Verification and Testing Protocols, users will also have access to timely technology-specific testing protocols and procedures as they are published.

This builds on the established Canadian ETV Program Generic Verification Protocol and other related decision-support tools. Periodic updates and important revelations concerning harmonization initiatives will be made available on the Canadian ETV Program website under the section for National & International Harmonization.
As the cost for conventional fuel sources continues to rise, so has the demand by both consumers and business organizations alike to seek alternative energy, derived from environmentally sustainable technology.
In light of this increased demand for green technology, the establishment of a rigorous independent and transparent verification process, will ultimately increase the credibility of verified technologies in the marketplace and confer solid competitive advantages in the global market place.
Potential key benefits realizable through the Canadian ETV Program include:
- Differentiation from the competition, thereby providing a company with a distinct market advantage.
- Clarification of the performance claim for the technology presented in a succinct and easily understood format.
- Added credibility with prospective buyers to reduce their perceived procurement risk.
- Reduced turnaround times relating to permitting and regulatory approvals for the use or sale of technologies.
- National and international market recognition
