ESOS: Discretion in Enforcement Action Until Jan 2016

The Environment Agency have announced in the latest ESOS newsletter (issue 6) that;

  • there will be NO change from the deadline of the 5 December for companies to demonstrate ESOS compliance,
  • BUT a notification that there will be discretion exercised in the enforcement action until 29 January 2016!

The date is in relation to late submissions, not an extension but exercising the right not to take enforcement action…. there is a difference!

There is a requirement to notify that compliance won’t be met on time, and hence not an excuse to not do anything! 

Whilst it’s not great for the companies that have already complied or have been pushing hard for the last few weeks to meet the deadline, it will be welcoming news to those companies that have been trying their hardest to comply but are starting to face concern about missing information or being able to engage the right level of Auditor.

Also organisations will now have until 30 June if following the ISO50001 compliance route under the announcement.
