ISO 50001 Energy management system – Requirements with guidance for use is a determination made by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) for an energy management system. The standard determines the prerequisites for setting up, executing, keeping up and improving an energy management system, whose reason for existing is to empower an association to pursue an efficient methodology in accomplishing persistent improvement of energy execution, including energy effectiveness, energy security, energy use and utilization. The standard means to help associations persistently decrease their energy use, and in this manner their energy costs and their green house gas emissions.
ISO 50001 was initially released by ISO in June 2011 and is appropriate for any association, whatever its size, part or geological area. The subsequent version, ISO 50001:2018 was released in August of 2018.The system is designed according to the ISO 9001 Quality Management System and the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System (EMS). Eccleston portrays the procedural subtleties of the ISO Energy Management System (EnMS) and contrasts its methods and those of the ISO 14001 EMS.
The principle goal of the standard is to improve energy related execution and energy proficiency ceaselessly and to recognize energy decrease openings. This methodical methodology will assist associations with establishing frameworks and procedures.
The structure of ISO 50001 is planned by other ISO the board framework benchmarks, specifically ISO 9001 (Quality Management Systems) and ISO 14001 (Environmental Management Systems). Since each of the three management system standard depend on the PDCA cycle, and now share a similar abnormal state structure, ISO 50001 can be incorporated effectively to these frameworks.
There are ten noteworthy segments to ISO 50001:2018:
- Normative references
- Terms and definitions
- Context of the organization
- Performance Evaluation
