Welcome to Elmhurst Auditing
Elmhurst is proud to introduce you to Elmhurst Auditing our auditing operation dedicated to helping Elmhurst members deliver quality within their energy assessments.
Important feedback from our members, coupled with the release of the new Scheme Operating Requirements (SORs), has allowed us to ultimately refresh and update our auditing processes here at Elmhurst. We are working harder than ever before to support our members throughout the audit process, ensuring that the focus remains firmly on the assessor and their personal growth in the industry. Our aim is to make auditing less of a burden and more of a positive learning experience for all.
Smart Auditing has now been introduced within our auditing mix, for DEAs in England and Wales. Essentially, this is great news for competent energy assessors as a risk-based approach will be adopted for audit selection. In essence, rather than the audit selection being entirely random, there will now be a mix of both random and Smart Audits with the latter targeting EPCs which are deemed to be at a higher risk of being incorrect. The good news is that this will not result in an increase in the volume of audits for members, but the focus of the audits will be on EPCs which present a greater risk of potential errors.
For those undertaking the auditing process for the first time it can be a daunting prospect. However, the support team are always available to help where possible. You can take a look at the most frequently asked questions about auditing here.
