Revision of ISO 50001 Energy Management System

The International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) has announced it is revising its energy performance standard – ISO 15001 Energy Management System.

The standard, which was first published in 2011, specifies requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and improving energy management systems to help organisations improve energy performance, efficiency, use and consumption.

The aim of the revision is to ensure ISO 5001 remains a useful tool for all types of businesses and organisation around the world.

The revision of the standard is ongoing and experts from nearly 30 countries recently met at an international conference, hosted by the Swedish Standards Institute (SIS), to discuss and advance the revision work.

A draft version of the standard will be available in the fourth quarter of 2017. ISO aims to publish the final revised standard in January 2019.
