A CHANGE IN THE RSB’S ESCO ACCREDITATION SCHEME
The RSB, having now had the experience of running the ESCO Accreditation scheme for more than 19 months, is aligning the requirements for staff qualifications for Provisional Accreditation with those for Full Accreditation. Effective 2 September 2015, new applicants for Provisional Accreditation will require a Certified Measurement and Verification Professional (CMVP) in addition to either a Certified Energy Auditor (CEA) or a Certified Energy Manager (CEM).
We recognize that current provisionally accredited ESCOs should be given a period in which to adjust to these new requirements. Therefore, this new requirement will only apply to renewals due on or after 6 March 2016, giving a minimum of six months for existing accredited organisations to meet the new requirements. There is no change to the renewal date for each ESCO as a result of this change.
Update: Applicants, please ensure cheque payments are payable to: Regulatory & Supervisory Bureau.
