Several sites – one certification

Businesses with several sites – including abroad – can save time and costs by means of a sampling procedure (multi-site procedure). Prerequisite: all sites are subject to a common (management) system and have a legal or contractual relationship with the headquarters of the company. Other rules may apply for companies whose registered office is outside Germany.

  • Installation of an energy management system according to ISO 50001 by 31 December 2016
    The multi-site procedure according to DAkkS Accreditation Rule (Akkreditierungsregel) 71 SD 6 022 is generally applicable, in so far as the above prerequisites are fulfilled.
  • Installation of an environmental management system according to EMAS by 31 December 2016
    There are opportunities for the use of a sampling procedure (the rules of the German accreditation and licensing organisation for environmental assessors (DAU) apply)
  • Performance of energy audits according to EN 16247-1 by 05 December 2015
    The multi-site procedure (DAkkS) is also to apply here. The Federal Office for Economic Affairs and Export Control (BAFA) will soon issue an information sheet on this subject.
