Quality and security

The following mechanisms ensure quality and security in the German biogas register:

System certification

2015 IDW audit.

Version 2.5 of the German biogas register application was audited in the year 2015 by a renowned auditing firm according to the auditing standard IDW PS 880  "Auditing software products" published by the Institute of Public Auditors in Germany (IDW).

It certifies the quality-controlled and proper development of the German biogas register. Furthermore, the register adheres to generally accepted accounting principles (GoB), and can be used as documentation for internal company audits (e.g. annual audits, company audits, internal audits).

Regular renewal of certification.

Because the data in the register serve as the basis for a large number of downstream steps (deliveries, invoicing, annual audits etc.), dena has the certification renewed on a regular basis.

In addition to the version audited, the software development is also certified. This ensures that subsequent versions continue to fulfil the relevant requirements.

The software was last successfully certified in 2015 according to the IDW PS 880 standard.
