ESOS Phase 2 is currently underway and all large undertakings are expected to complete new assessments by 5 December 2019, with any audits from now counting towards the final compliance. Below is the latest newsletter from the Environmental Agency, which makes it clear that they are becoming more stringent and less amenable to non-compliance, with a significant number of penalties being followed up.
It is expected that this tougher approach will continue, and that deadlines and requirements for Phase 2 will not be extended going forward. It is therefore important that businesses are fully compliant by the official deadlines.
