A Management Systems Certification Body must be able to demonstrate its competence to assess and certify an energy management system that conforms to ISO 50001.

Accreditation For Energy Management Systems

Its overall aim is to put in place systems and processes to provide significant energy usage reductions resulting in an associated decline in costs and greenhouse gas emission achievable through the systematic management of energy.

The standard is consistent with the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 management systems presently adopted throughout the industry and this makes it easier for organizations to integrate energy management into their overall efforts to improve quality and environmental management.

Accreditation is the means by which an authoritative body (U.S. Accreditation Inc.) gives formal recognition that an organization (the CB) is competent to carry out specific tasks. Accreditation provides assurance to customers that the CB operates according to internationally accepted criteria.

Naturally, an organization considering certification wants to know about the reputation and competence of the CB it selects. The organization wants assurance that the CB is competent to evaluate its systems and that, no matter where they're located, customers will value the CB's judgment.

Unaccredited CBs may not operate according to international requirements. Unscrupulous CBs may offer a certificate without an audit or any real understanding of an organization's processes. Such a certificate is of questionable value for the certified organization and its customers.

A Certification Body applying for ISO 50001 accreditation must conform to ISO/IEC 17021, ISO 50003 and other additional International requirements as detailed in Specific Requirements for Accreditation for Energy Management Systems Scheme.
