Update on ISO 50001 Revision
ISO 50001, the international standard for Energy Management Systems (EnMS), has become the latest standard to enter the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) revisions process.
ISO 50001 was issued at CD2 (Committee Draft 2) on August 2, 2016, which means that as a Committee Draft, members of ISO Technical Committee ISO/TC 242 will now circulate the draft and send comments to ISO by September 26, 2016.
Established to help organizations develop and establish systems to improve their energy performance including energy efficiency improvements, energy consumption reductions and cost and in turn lead to reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, over 7000 organizations globally had already achieved certification against ISO 50001 by the end of 2014.
Following this latest development, the currently available information indicates that ISO 50001 is likely to be published in January 2019 and in line with other ISO standards that have been or are being revised, ISO 50001 will incorporate the common text and high level structure through Annex SL.
