Why Get Certified to ISO 50001?
As well as being significant from an environmental perspective, the financial cost of using high levels of energy can seriously impact on the profitability of organisations.
In addition to these factors, legislation is changing all the time and is placing greater pressure on organisations regarding their energy processes.
ISO 50001 has been introduced in order to help organisations to develop a structured framework for the systematic management of energy. This standard is compatible with ISO14001, and BS EN ISO 5001:2018.
Transition to ISO 50001:2018
Due to COVID-19, the transition to the new requirements in this standard will not go into place until 31st January 2022. While this may seem a long time away, preparation is key.
In order to plan for the transition of the standard, you should make sure all staff within your business are trained in the standard and understand the requirements of the updated version.
You also need to identify issues that must be addressed in order to make sure you comply with the new standard. Once you have identified these, update your system as needed.
