What is ISO 50001?
ISO 50001 is a global standard for energy management. Created by ISO, the International Organization for Standardization, it is applicable to all sectors and supports the development of an energy management system (EnMS).
ISO 50001's Objective
The objective of ISO 50001 is to provide a thorough framework for organizations seeking to improve or manage their energy management performance.
What's the timeline?
ISO 50001 certification can occur at any time during the year. However, as ISO does not perform certification assessment, an external certification body must be used. Thus, the first steps in ISO 50001 certification is researching and selecting a certification body, ensuring that it uses the proper Committee on Conformity Assessment (CASCO) standard.
