ISO 50001: 2018

ISO 50001:2018 Energy management systems


ISO 50001:2018 is revised to follow ISO’s common framework and High Level Structure (HLS) for management system standards. Hence, it will be easier to integrate with other management system certifications, such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. 


“The world energy consumption is on the rise. Organizations have a very important role to play in achieving future sustainability through effective energy management and improved energy performance. Implementation of ISO 50001 transforms the way organizations manage their energy and offers companies a best practice approach to continually improve energy performance, sustainability and their bottom line. While around 25,000 companies currently hold a certificate, we hope to see more companies apply this standard in the future.”

Changes in ISO 50001:2018


The two main aims for the revision was to adapt the standard to the HLS, and to ensure that core concepts related to energy management were retained from the 2011 version. 

“With this new edition of ISO 50001, all major ISO management system standards are following the common HLS framework, which is clearly a benefit for users. We consider the changes in requirements compared with the 2011 edition as moderate. The most extensive changes are induced by the HLS, but there are also some energy specific changes to be noted. Those that are already familiar with the HLS will easily recognize the majority of actions required to comply with the new standard”
