I-REC(E) Product Code

The I-REC(E) Product code is the document that defines how I-REC(E) operates and detailed information on the two roles (Registrant and Participant) we outline below.

To access a copy of the I-REC(E) product code download a copy from the above I-Track link or via either of the Onboarding packs we provide Onboarding to IREC(E).

What is a Registrant

An Entity responsible for acting on behalf of the owner of a Production Facility regarding the registration of the facility for a specific Product and associated Issue Requests. As an example, an I-REC(E) Registrant acts on behalf of an electricity generation facility and is authorized to request issuance of I-REC(E)s based on the attributes of the energy production.

What is the role of the Registrant?
A Registrant is the only entity that can request device registration or issuance of Product Certificates. They can do this on behalf of a device owner or on their own behalf (if they themselves are device owners). The Registrant has direct contact with the Issuer authorized to conduct issuance in a specific country or region. Once the Issuer has approved the device registration, a Registrant can request certificate issuance for that device. To request certificate issuance, the Registrant will choose their device and request issuance for a specific period. The Registrant must always request Product Certificates be issued into the account (trade account) of a Participant. Registrants can also be a Participant.
