2BS voluntary scheme requirements and documents

The documents published in this section cover the entire 2BSvs certification scheme and apply to all parties in the 2BSvs process: economic operators, auditors and affiliated certification bodies, 2BS Association members and interested parties.

Access to the documents is managed using access rights, access being restricted or public according to the level of use. You must log in for access to private documents.

Access rights are determined by category of user:

  • Certification bodies and their auditors
  • Economic Operator certified by the voluntary scheme 2BS
  • General public


To access documents restricted to the first two categories the person must first apply for restricted access. This subscription also allows the person to receive by email all updates of documents which are published on the 2BS internet site. The reference documents for the 2BS certification scheme are exclusively documents officially recognised by the European Commission as well as other work documents published by the Association 2BS.

The documents can be downloaded freely, according to the access rights, but only the version on the internet site is kept up to date by the 2BS consortium. Documents published on the internet site are the intellectual property of the 2BS consortium, except for the documents in « external documents » section. Any use of documents other than for certification purposes or maintaining the 2BS management system requires prior written authorization from the 2BS Association.

All reference documents and documents relating to the application of the 2BSvs certification scheme can be consulted depending on the access rights defined by the 2BS consortium at the time that each document is put on-line and documents are organised into five pillars as follows:

2BS-PRO-04 - Extension of requirements for the production of biofuels, biogas and bioliquids from wastes and residues  fren pdf New ! - 2BS-PRO-04 - Procedure

The auditing principles applicable to biofuels made from wastes and residues are the same as those used for biofuels produced from other biomass. However, this specific procedure supplements the general system principles and describes them in more detail, in order to trace the feedstock back to its origin, covering the whole chain of custody.

To make the audit reports more comprehensive and regarding the necessary information to be included in records such as certificates, lead auditors must provide and record a certain amount of information in the audit report, in the check list pf the audit, and in the audit plan.
This additional information will lead to better legibility in the files regarding their examination or their comprehension and will allow the harmonisation of the supplied data between the different certification bodies.

The purpose of the last update:

- The integration of an energy block, integrated at each stage of production, and which allows modelling finely the systems of production of steam and electricity (notably cogenerations, multiple steam production systems, Electricity or electricity produced by the turbo, which is common in sugar mills).
 
- The distinction between the two processes that make up the bioethanol beet processing chain: sugar refinery and distillery, instead of a single process block. This makes it possible in particular to improve the accuracy of the allocation between the beet pulps and the various sugary candy substrates.
 
- The modelling of each sugar substrate intended for the distillery: green juice, syrup and lean sewer of 2nd crystallisation jet. Thus, modelling approaches as closely as possible to industrial reality, without being too complex.
