Webinar: ISO 50001:2018 - Transition Essentials
05 April 2019
ISO 50001:2018 has been published. Join our free webinar to find out what the changes to the revised standard are.
Our technical expert Richard Walsh, will highlight the changes to the revised ISO 50001 standard and how they will have an impact on your energy management system.
Originally published in 2011, ISO 50001 has enabled organizations to follow a systematic approach in achieving continual improvement of energy performance, including energy efficiency, energy use and consumption.
As with all management standards, ISO 50001 has undergone a comprehensive review to ensure that it continues to meet the rapidly changing needs of energy users across all sectors.
Deann Desai, Professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology and Convenor of the working group tasked with revising the standard states:
“Perhaps the most important change for the 2018 version is the incorporation of the high-level structure, which provides for improved compatibility with other management system standards. The high-level structure is a simple and effective concept. Because organizations often implement a number of management system standards, the use of a shared structure, as well as many of the same terms and definitions, helps to keep things simple.”
This is particularly useful for those organizations that choose to operate an integrated management system that combines the requirements of two or more other systems. This now brings the standard into line with the other recently amended standards ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018.
There are other improvements in the 2018 version to help ensure that the key concepts related to energy performance are clear for small and mid-sized businesses.
The revised standard was published by ISO on 21st August 2018.
If you’re already familiar with ISO 50001:2011 but want to find out about the changes that lie ahead, this webinar will introduce you to high level structure used by the other standards and will explore the actual changes from ISO 50001:2011. It will help you identify gaps in your current EnMS and start planning your transition to the revised standard.
During the webinar questions can be posted which we will endeavour to answer throughout and during a live Q&A at the end.
