(25)  where a flow meter has been calibrated, a demonstration that the calibration was performed in variable flow conditions matching the conditions of the landfill site;
(26)  where a CH4 analyzer has been calibrated, a demonstration that the calibration was performed in temperature and pressure conditions matching the conditions of the landfill site;
(27)  where the promoter is not the owner of the project site, a declaration by the owner that the owner has authorized the carrying out of the project by the promoter and undertakes, with respect to the GHG emission reductions covered by the project report, not to make a request for the issuance of offset credits under the Regulation respecting a cap-and-trade system for greenhouse gas emission allowances (chapter Q-2, r. 46.1) or for credits under another GHG offset program;
(28)  a declaration by the promoter or the promoter’s representative that no offset credits for the GHG emission reductions covered by the project report have been issued pursuant to the Regulation respecting a cap-and-trade system for greenhouse gas emission allowances and that no credits have been or will be issued under another GHG offset program;
(29)  a declaration by the promoter or the promoter’s representative that the project is carried out in accordance with this Regulation and that the information and documents provided are complete and accurate.
