ESOS deadline has passed……but it’s not too late!


The ESOS deadline has now passed. Organisations were required to notify the Environment Agency that a Lead Assessor has been appointed and had signed off their ESOS compliance before the 5th December 2015.

However, for those organisations that didn’t make the deadline, a lifeline has been thrown. If they notify the environment agency using the ‘intent to comply form’ then no enforcement action will be taken until 29 January 2016.

The Environment agency reports that 4000 organisations have now completed the ESOS process with a further 2500 having used the delay notification form and who intended to comply by 29th January 2016.

The Environment agency point out that technically the deadline has not changed, it is just a loosening of the way they view the enforcement.
