EASA Accreditation, an extremely specific electromechanical audit process.
EASA’s Accreditation process is the only long-term market funded audit offering (we believe) covering extensively both electrical and mechanical aspects of the electric motor service industry.
EASA's foundation for Accreditation was derived from the following publications:
1. ANSI/EASA AR100-2015 (soon to be 2020) repair specification;
2. The Effect of Repair/Rewinding on Motor Efficiency (EASA/AEMT Rewind Study and Good Practice Guide to Maintain Motor
3. The Effect of Repair/Rewinding on Premium Efficiency/IE3 Motors
The EASA Accreditation Program was announced June 30, 2014 at EASA's Boston International Convention. Now, coming up on seven years, EASA Accreditation has reached a tipping point in multiple markets. Meaning, when an area motor service center markets and delivers motor end-users recognized EASA Accreditation compliant repaired and/or rewound electric motors—Other area service centers become EASA Accreditation Members to compete.
EASA's Accreditation program and our Green Motor Initiative (GMI) electric utility program operate within the GMPG organization independently of one-another. Obtaining one does not necessarily include the other, as GMI requires yearly onsite audits and EASA Accreditation, with more stringent requirements, runs on a three-year cycle with two of the cycle years having self-audits.
By the way, both EASA Accreditation and the Green Motor Initiative renewal onsite audits can be done either in-person or remotely.
