All companies that are certified to IS 393 must transition or upgrade to EN 16001 by July 2010.
Members of the Energy Agreements Programme have been implementing IS 393 since 2006 and have achieved substantial improvements in energy efficiency, as well as savings.
EN 16001 is based on and does not contain any major changes from the Irish standard IS 393. In some clauses, the text is almost identical.
Irish-based companies, including multinationals, that are now transitioning to EN 16001 are among the first companies to achieve this certification and are considered best practice internationally.
