ESOS compliance

The deadline for qualifying businesses to comply with the requirements of the Energy Savings Opportunities Scheme is the 5th December 2015.

What to do if you’re not compliant by 5 December 2015

You must inform the Environment Agency by 5 December 2015 if you cannot submit a notification of compliance. Explain why you’ve missed the compliance deadline and when you expect to be able to.

You will need to do this via on online form which will be published on the ESOS guidance page on Gov.uk (click here to view this web page) before 5 December 2015. The Environment Agency will send out an email when this form is available. To be added to their emailing list email esos@environment-agency.gov.uk.

Qualifying organisations that do not complete and notify a compliance assessment by 5 December 2015 will be in breach of the regulations and at risk of enforcement action and penalties. Enforcement action will not normally be taken provided your notification is received by 29 January 2016.

For organisations committing to achieving compliance through ISO 50001 certification, enforcement action will not normally be taken as long as notification is received by 30 June 2016.
