About I-RECs Registry
Evident is an International REC Standard Foundation accredited registry provider.
Individuals or entities seeking to hold or trade I-RECs are required to maintain at least one account within the I-REC registry. End-consumers interested in procuring and redeeming I-REC certificates may either have their individual accounts or engage as clients of established market players who will manage accounts on their behalf.
Issuers are responsible for the registration process of ‘Registrants’, who can be either owners of production devices or entities representing these owners within a given country or region. Without explicit authorization from the Issuer for a specific country or region, the issuance of I-RECs for production devices within that jurisdiction is not possible. Additionally, Issuers are accountable for issuance of I-RECs a process that includes data verification typically submitted by users.
