Standard for Energy Management Systems
ISO 50001 is a voluntary, international standard for the evaluation and certification of energy management systems, issued by ISO, the International Organization for Standardization.
ISO 50001 establishes a framework for industrial plants, commercial, institutional and governmental facilities, and entire organisations to manage energy and become more energy efficient. The energy management system showing the TÜV Rheinland mark is audited and certified by TÜV Rheinland.
Expert auditors analyse and evaluate the customers' organisation. If all necessary requirements are fulfilled, the organisation is certified according to ISO 50001. The energy management system at the organisation is subject to periodic surveillance.
Certified organisations may use the test mark in their communications.
