ISO 50001 Energy management

ISO 50001 is a continuous improvement management system certification standard, in line with ISO 14001 and ISO 9001. The ISO 50001 standard helps organisations monitor and improve their energy efficiency through the implementation of an energy management system in their quality systems. It is designed for every kind of company, large or small, manufacturing or service. According to ISO itself, this standard could influence up to 60% of world´s energy use.

How you benefit

The ISO 50001 standard has multiple advantages. In a world of declining recourses, global warming and rising energy costs the efficiency of a company´s energy use has an increasing impact. By monitoring and reducing the energy use a company could save costs, reduce their carbon footprints and add publicly to a better environment.

Control Union is in the process of being accredited for ISO 50001:2011, and is able to do certification audits on a global scale. Especially for multi-site companies that are situated in different countries, our network could be of importance in performing multiple audits. We can perform our audits at different locations at the same time intervals, making the certification process transparent and efficient.

What the standard looks like

ISO 50001 is based on other ISO management systems like ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 22000, which Control Union also offers. When these standards are combined, companies can integrate energy management with quality, environmental and food management systems. As usual, with these kinds of standards, a ‘plan-do-check-act’ model should be implemented by the company, resulting in the following:
•    Establishing an energy policy and appointing a responsible energy team
•    Developing policy objectives
•    Gathering data of energy use to measure whether the objectives are reached
•    A review of the energy policy to increase efficiency, based on data gathering
•    Continuously improved energy management is continuously improved

How to get certified

The ISO 50001 certification process consists of a 3-year audit cycle, including  a yearly audit. The certification programme looks like this: initial audit, surveillance audit and a renewal audit 3 years after the initial audit.
