Audit of declarations by members producing small fire extinguishers

In compliance with its obligations in the specifications document for authority approval, ESR must check at least 20% of the tonnages declared by its producer members. This audit enables the correct accounting of declared data to be checked and thereby ensure fairness in sector funding and amongst its members. It also assists members in understanding the scope of declarations and accuracy in reporting.  The understanding and the application of the reference information in the companies audited were assessed using the declarations on the introduction of equipment onto the market in 2017.
