ISO 50001 – Energy Management Systems (EnMS)

ISO 50001 is based on the ISO management system model familiar to more than a million organisations worldwide who implement standards such as ISO 9001 (quality management), ISO 14001 (environmental management), ISO 22000 (food safety), ISO/IEC 27001 (information security).

ISO 50001 enables organisations in all sectors to use energy more efficiently and reduce costs, through the development of energy management systems (EnMS).

Why certification?

“In an uncertain time of changing legislation and political landscapes it is our expert opinion that ISO 50001 is the best way to safeguard against both legislative and energy price changes, whilst demonstrating the very best practice that there is.”

There are important benefits to certification including:

  • Legislation compliance – ISO 50001 provides the best route for energy compliance and ticks the box for other major energy legislation such as ESOS (2019)
  • Futureproofing – prepares you for the implications of the Paris Climate Change agreement
  • Efficiency – establishes a framework for managing your energy consumption & spend
  • De-risking – ensures you understand your energy dependence and are managing your energy risk

How BSECC can help

BSSEC can help you with all aspects of accreditation. We can research and prepare all the required documentation, including working with your accreditor to achieve certification. If you don’t have an accreditor we can recommend one. In short, whatever you need to achieve ISO 50001, we can help.

Gap Analysis

BSSEC can undertake a no obligation desktop gap analysis to help you determine the likely workload and timescale for implementing an EnMS that will achieve ISO 50001 certification.
