The original rapidly looming ESOS compliance deadline on the 5th December must mean that your schedule is becoming more hectic as your workload increases.
However, the latest ESOS Newsletter of the Environment Agency (EA) suggests that whilst the compliance date remains set for early December, penalties’ enforcement action for non-compliance by the 5th December will start after 29th January 2016.
In plain English, the EA wants to be informed by the 5th December if you fully comply with ESOS (notification of compliance), or if you have tried (taken some steps, including nominating your ESOS lead assessor) towards complying. Do let the EA know either way.
If by the 5th you have not completed your full compliance and only taken some steps towards it, you will have until 29 January 2016 to fully comply.
