Introduction of the Environmental Technology Verification Program by MOE Japan

Summary of Business

The Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) Program is a program in which third-parties objectively verify the environmental conservation effects, etc., of these advanced technologies that have not spread yet.
Advanced environmental technologies, even though they are commercial-ready and considered to be useful, have not necessarily been pervasive widely because objective assessments on environmental conservation effects, etc., have not been made and end users such as local governments, companies, and consumers cannot use them without anxiety.
It is expected by implementing this program that the spread of environmental technologies developed by venture companies, etc., is promoted and economic activities are stimulated through environmental conservation and the development of local environmental industries.
Under this program, it focuses “verifying” a certain technology, rather than “evaluating” it. "Verification" means the process by which objective data based on tests, etc., for the environmental conservation effects of an environmental technology, as well as its secondary environmental impacts and other important aspects of performance from environmental perspective (“environmental conservation effects”), are indicated by third parties who are neither developers nor users of the technology. "Verification" differs from "certification," whereby certain evaluation standards are established and then compliance is judged based on those standards.
Japan ETV tries promoting innovative technologies as well as supporting SMEs which develop such technologies. Verification fee is intentionally set at minimum, e.g. 5,000USD.
In FY2003, the Ministry of the Environment (MOE) implemented the Pilot Project. The Pilot Project shifted into the Full-scale Project in FY2008. By FY2012, about 520 technologies had been verified, world top runner verified cases.
