Production

Certification procedure - Certification Body
Inspection Bodies - Suspended Certificates

Certification procedure


  1. The CANplus™ & ENplus™ certification programs are managed by WPAC. Both standards are identical. This means that the certification Audits for both CANplus™ & ENplus™ can be done simultaneously in order that producer may receive both certifications at once.


  2. WPAC appointed Control Union Canada as the Certification Body for CANplus™ & ENplus™.


  3. Select an approved inspection body (see below) and an approved Testing body (see below) and sign an inspection/testing contract for annual production control.


  4. Download and fill in the application form. There are forms for producers, traders and service providers as well as data sheets for plants, vehicles, bagging stations, remote pellet store, service providers and affiliated companies.


  5. Please submit the completed forms to certification@pellet.org and send 2 signed copies by post mail to WPAC Certification office:
    WPAC Certifications
    #103 – 173 Forester Street
    North Vancouver, V7H 0A6, BC, Canada


  6. In case of pellet producers and traders with bagging station, the inspection body will perform an initial inspection. Regular traders will be inspected during the first year of certification.


  7. If your company fulfills the requirements for certification, you will receive an invoice for the license fees for the on-going year.


  8. After your payment, you will receive the certification seal, the certificate and the countersigned license contract.

Certification Body


The certification body is responsible for checking all relevant documents (most notably the application and results of the audit as well as lab results).
