TÜV SÜD has been recognized formally as certification body for running audits according to CertifHy™’s NGC Scheme. The NGC scheme enables certified proofs of origin for hydrogen throughout Europe for the voluntary market. TÜV SÜD has been member of the CertifHy™ consortium from the very beginning and has contributed its extensive certification expertise to the project. TÜV SÜD therefore has a deep technical understanding of the scheme.
CertifHy™ aims to facilitate and advance the production, procurement, and use of non-renewable, renewable, and low-carbon hydrogen. It has developed the CertifHy™ NGC scheme in Europe to support the growth of the hydrogen market by providing a reliable tool for consumers to track hydrogen’s origin and environmental credentials. The certificates facilitate the trade of renewable and low-carbon hydrogen throughout Europe.

More than 26,000 employees work at over 1.000 locations in about 50 countries to continually improve technology, systems and expertise. They contribute significantly to making technical innovations such as Industry 4.0, autonomous driving, renewable energy and hydrogen technologies safe and reliable.

TÜV SÜD has been member of the CertifHy™ consortium from the very beginning in 2014/2015. In the first phase of project, the experts advised the set-up of the non-governmental scheme. In the second phase TÜV SÜD acted as certifier for pilot-certifications of five projects and in the third phase TÜV SÜD carried out trainings of other certification bodies interested in certifying and auditing CertifHy™-projects.

We are thrilled to formally recognise them as a Certification Body for our NGC Scheme, especially as the market for NGCs is experiencing rapid growth. This moment marks a significant milestone in our collaboration, reaffirming our shared dedication to advancing the hydrogen economy. We look forward to continuing this journey together and driving further growth in this market.” – Matthieu Boisson, Project Director of CertifHy™.
