ISO 50001 Energy Management

The ISO 50001 demands the conformity on an improvement of energy performance.


In essence, the ISO 50001 describes requirements for the:

  • commitment of senior management to the compliant implementation of the energy management system
  • definition of an energetic starting point, of energy targets and action plans
  • management of resources and responsibilities
  • determination and evaluation of energetic aspects, energy performance indicators
  • training and information of employees and internal audits at fixed intervals
  • measurement and analysis of energy related services
  • continuous improvement and maintenance of the system


The certification according to ISO 14001 is carried out according the DAU  accreditation only by approved environmental evaluators or optionally to DAkkS accreditation by our cooperation Partner.

We offer for your company:

ISO 50001 certification

ISO 50001 2nd party audits at your suppliers

ISO 50001 pre-certification audits as a certification stress test


 

 

ISO 50001 Information

ISO 50001 energy management

An environmental management system according to ISO 14001 focuses on environmental protection and on improving environmental performance. The ISO 50001 establishes parallel requirements that reflect the improvement in energy performance.

In essence, the ISO 50001 requirements describe the:

 

  • commitment of the acountable management to the compliant implementation of the energy management system
  • definition of an energetic starting point, of energy targets and action plans
  • management of resources and responsibilities
  • determination and evaluation of energetic aspects, energy performance indicators
  • training and information of employees and internal audits at fixed intervals
  • measurement and analysis of energy related services
  • continuous improvement and maintenance of the system


Companies achieve long-term compliance security with an EnMS or holistic environmental management, and a reduction in the CO2 footprint of particularly energy-intensive companies.

Recent changes to ISO 50001 certifications

With the publication of the ISO 50003 in November 2016, the standard for the auditing of energy management systems, it is explicitly required that a verifiable improvement in energy-related performance should be presented as a reliable certification criterion.

The ISO 50003 demands reliable and plausible improvements in energy-related performance compared to the energetic starting point. The ISO 50001 assessments require auditors to view and verify objective evidence of energy-related performance. Conversely, this means that "non-achievement" of improvement goals should be considered as nonconformity.

Accordingly, a greater emphasis will be placed on the following standards and guidelines:

 

  • Energetic basis (ISO 50001, 50006, 50015)
  • Energy indicators (ISO 50006)
  • Measuring and verifying (ISO 50015).
  • Monitoring, analysis and evaluation (ISO 50001)
  • Guide to conducting energy audits (ISO 50002)


Another change to the previous certification system goes hand in hand with the classification of industry scopes in so-called technical areas in accordance with Table 2, section 6.3 of ISO 50003: 2014.

This new subdivision into technical areas presupposes that auditors are also qualified for the respective industry sectors. This corresponds approximately to the direction of current qualification requirements for auditors analogous to the more demanding ISO standards, such as e.g. ISO 9001: 2015 or in particular at EMAS reviewers.
The duration of DAkk's accredited energy management system certification audits is also subject to change. The calculation basis of the DAkkS (document 71 SD 6 022) to be applied so far is changed.
For the determination of the audit duration, the number of employees who effectively influence the energy efficiency, ie the energy output in the companies, is now taken as the basis. At the same time, this also means that in the future the staff will be audited more intensively, which will have an impact on the effectiveness of the EnMS or have a significant impact on energy consumption and energy efficiency

EnMS auditors must, in accordance with the new auditing requirements of ISO 50003, see in the future ISO 50001 audits objective evidence to improve energy performance and energy efficiency. This means that the EnMS managers in the organizations are increasingly focusing on "key figures and influencing factors" instead of "measuring and verifying".
An effective performance indicator system, which transparently depicts the energy-related performance of a company, will receive a greater weighting in the future
