About ISO 50001 and Accreditation

ISO 50001 is the international standard for energy management systems (EnMS), and provides a framework for organizations to manage energy, including energy efficiency, use, and consumption. The standard was developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in order to help businesses and other organizations save money and resources by improving their energy efficiency. It is based on the successful management system model of ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, and can be used by any organization, regardless of size or sector.

In order to become accredited to issue ISO 50001 certificates, certification bodies must undergo a rigorous assessment process by an accreditation body. This assessment includes a review of the certification body's procedures and policies, as well as audits of the certification body's facilities and operations.
