ISO 50001 Energy Management System

Overview of ISO 50001

ISO 50001:2018 Energy management systems — Requirements with guidance for use (EnMS)
ISO 50001:2018 is an energy management system standard published by International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
It specifies requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and improving an energy management system (EnMS). The intended outcome is to enable an organization to follow a systematic approach in achieving continual improvement of energy performance and the EnMS.
ISO 50001 provides organizations with an internationally recognized framework for implementing an energy management system (EnMS).
Who Should Use ISO 50001?
  1. Organizations of all types and sizes and natures can implement ISO 50001 EnMS.
    It does not matter what size your organization is:
    • Any organisation with as few as 2 persons to as large as million persons can benefit from ISO 50001 EnMS.
    It does not matter what industry you are in:
    • Any organisation in service or manufacturing, profit or non-profit organisation, private or public or government can implement ISO 50001 EnMS.
    • Any industrial plants, commercial, institutional, or governmental facilities and entire organizations.
    • Any organisation that consumes energy, regardless of industry. 
  2. Any organization that wants to gain an internationally recognized framework for implementing an energy management system.
  3. Any organization that wants to systematically track, analyze, and improve energy efficiency.
Why Should You Use ISO 50001?
  1. If you want to take control of the way you use energy and manage the related costs more effectively, you should use ISO 50001. It is particularly beneficial for organizations with significant energy expenditure.
  2. You want to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental impacts.
  3. You may face the risks and lost opportunities involved with not having an ISO 50001:
    • where ISO 50001 may be a legal or contractual requirement; and
    • you will potentially be eligible for more lucrative, large scale both government and private sector contracts that are only offered to organisations that have ISO 50001.

MLOK’s methodology and approach to making your company ISO 50001 complied for certification
We adopt four stages of the most practical and methodological process to help you certified for ISO 50001.

Stage 1: Planning
Conduct Kick-Off Meeting to:
  1. establish implementation schedule and plan;
  2. appoint EnMS Committee;
  3. establish an ISO 50001 EnMS documentation framework; and
  4. have a fundamental understanding of the requirements of ISO 50001.
Stage 2: Documentation
Drafting and writing documents to comply with ISO 50001 requirements:
  1. EnMS Manual;
  2. Job Description;
  3. EnMS Procedures:
    • business impact analysis (BIA) and risk assessment;
    • procedure for identification of applicable legal and regulatory requirements;
    • business continuity strategy;
    • business continuity plans and procedures;
    • recovery procedures;
    • procedure for communication with interested parties;
    • exercising and testing the business continuity procedures; and
    • others as applicable. 
  4. EnMS Supporting Process Procedures;
  5. EnMS System Procedures; and
  6. EnMS Forms, Work Instructions and others.
Stage 3: Implementation
  1. Guidance and advice on the implementation of the documented EnMS.
  2. To conduct ISO 50001 EnMS Internal Audit Training.
  3. To conduct an ISO 50001 EnMS Internal Audit.
  4. To conduct an ISO 50001 EnMS Management Review Meeting.
Stage 4: External Audit
  • Stage 1 Documentation Audit by the Certification Body.
  • Rectification of Stage 1 Audit Finding issued by the Certification Body.
  • Stage 2 Audit Compliance Audit by the Certification Body.
  • Rectification of Stage 2 NCRs issued by the Certification Body.

You will then receive your ISO 50001 certificate.
