Because of COVID-19 and the latest variant, several motor service centers informed us they will NOT allow visitors in their offices or shop-floor. We certainly understand. We do not want to inadvertently spread the virus from company to company as we conduct in-person onsite verifications or bring it home to our families.
As an alternative beginning April 2020 through October of 2022, we will be conducting EASA Accreditation and Green Motor Initiative (GMI) electronic onsite “remote-verifications” using current camera/voice technology (e.g. RingCentral a Zoom product), much like tele-medicine. Having a long history with our motor service center clients, many going back to 2002 and all of them over the last three years, we’re confident remote-verifications are as effective as in-person, safe, and a less costly alternative.
There are two instances where GMI remote-verification will not be used:
1) If a motor service center has had compliancy issues during recent evaluations and,
2) NO NEW motor service center clients are eligible. We must conduct an in-person verification for new motor service centers to participate in either EASA Accreditation or Green Motor Initiative electric utility efficiency incentives.
