Overview of ISO 50001:2018

This first part introduces the ISO 50001 standard and explains what it is, how it's used, and the purpose and benefits of an EnMS.

ISO 50001:2018 Requirements

Next, the course takes a step-by-step look at the relevant clauses in the 50001 standard in order to understand what they mean and what your company needs to do to comply with them.

Documented Information

Clear, well-written, and non-bureaucratic documentation is an important part of an ISO 50001 Energy Management System.

A point worth noting here is that documents are used for storing and sharing information, while records are essentially hard copies of results (such as from an audit) or evidence of activities that have been performed. And while documents get revised from to time and are generally kept up-to-date, records are static and never revised.

Steps for Implementation & Certification

The final part explains how organizations can implement an ISO 50001 EnMS, ensure it complies with the standard's requirements, and achieve certification.
