Good Practice: Quality Assurance and Quality Control in Denmark's National GHG Inventory

Denmark annually produces a national GHG inventory in line with UNFCCC requirements and related requirements at EU-level. The GHG inventory is produced by the Danish Centre for Environment and Energy (DCE) at Aarhus University. Quality of the compilation process is ensured by a quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) plan, which sets out well-structured and transparent data management processes with integrated checks along every step of the pathway from collection of raw data to data compilation, modelling, documentation/ archiving and final reporting.
