What is ISO 50001?
ISO 50001 is the international standard for Energy Management Systems (EnMS). It is applicable to any organisation – whatever your size, industry or location to manage their energy, including procurement and use. ISO 50001 is based on the management system model of continual improvement also used for other well-known standards such as ISO 9001 or ISO 14001.
ISO 50001 specifies requirements an organisation needs to establish, implement, maintain and improve an energy management system. That enables an organisation to take a systematic approach to achieve continual improvement of energy performance, energy efficiency and energy conservation.

The development of an ISO 50001 compliant Energy Management system offers organisations a systematic approach to tackling climate change and conserving resources, through using energy more efficiently.
It helps organizations manage energy supply, uses and consumption, including measurement, documentation and reporting, design and procurement practices for energy consuming equipment, systems, processes, and personnel.
What is involved?
Our team will perform a Gap Analysis which acts as the initial step in the review of your company’s internal processes and practices or management systems, where applicable, to determine where your company is today in relation to achieving certification to the standard.
TZC will develop and deliver tailored training programmes for your staff to supplement your ISO certification. This ensures a full understanding and implementation of the quality controls being put in place, by way of employee development.
The external audit is the monitoring of your company’s conformance to the ISO standard. TZC will continually support your business through the aforementioned stages as well as leading up to the audit, offering support and guidance to conformity. Once your organisation is confirmed as being ISO standard compliant, your organisation will be submitted to the certifying body deemed suitable. Your organisation will then be awarded the ISO certification.
