The ISO 50001 energy management system will help your business establish industry best practices in energy efficiency. By improving performance and reducing consumption, you will save money, help protect the environment and enhance your brand’s green credentials. This can give you a distinct competitive advantage because the ISO 50001 certificate clearly demonstrates to customers and other stakeholders that your business is committed to reducing its environmental impact.
The ISO 50001 standard can help your business improve its business processes, use resources more efficiently and save money by cutting your energy consumption and carbon emissions. The standard is suitable for all businesses in the private and public sector from sole traders to multinational organisations.
ISO 50001 delivers immediate benefits and long-term savings. By showing where you are wasting energy, it can help you start saving money from day one with improved energy efficiency. Over time, this can enhance your brand reputation and open up new business opportunities as renewable energy technology develops.
Our expert consultants will make the process of gaining ISO 50001 as straightforward as possible for you. This includes helping your business make any necessary improvements to its processes.
Our 3-stage certification process ensures you get the help you need at every step. We can even create your Energy Management System Manual for you, saving you time and money.
Once you have achieved certification you will need to pass an audit each year. This is to ensure your business continues to control its energy consumption. Your first audit will be one year after you receive your ISO 50001 certificate.
A QMS Consultant will visit your Organisation to review and document your current processes and procedures, highlighting any areas that do not meet the requirements of the Standard.
Now it's time to make sure any required process or procedural changes are made, as highlighted in the Review. QMS can provide templates to assist you in doing this.
Once you have achieved certification the certification cycle will commence. This is made up of surveillance and re-certification audits, one of which must take place each year, around the anniversary of your certification. These visits confirm your continued compliance with the Standard and verify the validity of your certification.

The cost of certification depends on several factors. These include your business sector, your annual turnover, and the number of employees you have. We will also need to know if you require any special industry accreditation (such as from the ASCB or UKAS).
However, QMS is committed to providing you with a cost-effective route to ISO 50001 certification. That’s why we focus on making certification simple and straightforward. By spending less time creating complex document trails and more time building a system that works for your business, we can save you money.

We can normally save you time and hard work by drafting your Energy Management System Manual for you. This can also help you achieve certification faster than if you did it yourself.
At QMS we are constantly updating our approach and process to meet the latest changes in how ISO 50001 works.
