What is ISO 50001?

ISO 50001 is the international standard for energy management.

The standard specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and improving an energy management system. ISO 50001 is based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle to continual improvement and addresses the measurement, documentation, and reporting of energy use and consumption, and the variables that affect energy performance, security, and efficiency of the organisation.

Plan: conduct the energy review and establish the baseline, energy performance indicators (EnPIs), objectives, targets and action plans necessary to deliver the results that will improve energy performance in accordance with organisations energy policy;

Do: implement the energy management action plans;

Check: monitor and measure processes and the key characteristics of operations that determine energy performance against the energy policy and objectives, and report the results;

Act: take actions to continually improve energy performance and the ENMS.

The standard aims to help organizations continually reduce their energy use, and therefore energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions.


ISO 50001 certification is beneficial for companies as it:

  • Promote energy management best practices and reinforce good energy management behaviours,
  • Assist facilities in evaluating and prioritizing the implementation of new energy-efficient technologies,
  • Provide a framework for promoting energy efficiency throughout the supply chain,
  • Facilitate energy management improvements for greenhouse gas emission reduction projects,
  • Allow integration with other organisational management systems such as environmental, health and safety.

Eight Weeks to Certification

Certification can be an extremely valuable asset to organisations. It can enable them to attract more clients, generate higher revenue, and build better customer confidence. In addition to this, some organisations require businesses to be certified to management standards in order to win tenders.

We specialise in assisting organisations with developing and implementing management systems which put your business on the path to becoming certified in as little as eight weeks.

Our Eight Week Process is designed to give clients the most efficient turnaround time whilst delivering service second to none.

Frequently Asked Questions

What industries do you work with?

As a leading provider of consultancy services we cover a wide range of disciplines including safety compliance, quality compliance and environmental compliance across high-risk industries.

We work with high risk industries including construction, manufacturing, aviation, professional services, healthcare, and transport.

What can all these management systems do for my business?

Management Systems alone won’t add any value to your business or your staff. Although, if a Management System is designed to fit into the existing operations of the business, and with input from the expected staff who will be using the system, then you will start seeing improvement.

Depending on the type of Management System and what standards it is designed to comply with, you can expect the following improvements:

  • Less instances of the organisation quoting/tendering for a project/client that they cannot actually provide the product or service for
  • Better responses to customer complaints
  • A mechanism for identifying issues and then systematically fixing them and preventing them from occurring again
  • If certified, recognition from your customers for achieving certification and increased confidence from prospective customers

These are some of the benefits of a Management System although there are many more that an organisation can achieve if it adopts the system into its core operations.

What is Third Party Certification and who does it?
Third Party Certification is the process of having your Management System audited by an independent third party. This type of auditing is typically used by Conformity Assessment Bodies (CABs) who are regulated by a government organisation known as JAS-ANZ. These CABs can issue registered certificates of compliance to various standards such as ISO 9001, AS 4801, and ISO 14001.
Is the process fixed at the duration of eight weeks?
The Eight Week Process is our preferred methodology for most Management System projects although this can vary depending on the standards involved and internal deadlines.
Are there any hidden costs?
Unlike many competitors who operate by a time and materials model, we operate by a fixed-fee model. We provide clients with proposals that outline the methodology for the project, the deliverables, and the total cost.
Is the initial consultation obligation free?
Yes, the initial consultation meeting with you to gauge what certification would be suitable for the business and also get an understanding of how the business works is free so that we can provide an accurate proposal.
