4.2 Roles responsibility and authority

The successful implementation of an energy management system will require the commitment and effort of all staff at every level of the organization. In the planning phase you will identify the people who have both direct and indirect effect on energy use within the organization and the training needs for those staff.

For each of the job titles that are identified,  list the roles and responsibilities in terms of the EnMS, starting with the top level of management and working through the rest of the organization.

It is important to define clearly who has authority for which elements of the EnMS. This will avoid any conflict or misunderstandings.
