IRCA 6032002 – Stewart King – Provisional Auditor
What does that mean then? Well, it means that I can provide advice / assistance to any organisation interested in certifying to ISO50001 to ensure they are ready for the certification process.
I will also be developing my auditing experience so that in time I can qualify as a Lead Auditor in my own right at which stage I will be able to work for the Certification Bodies to provide 3rd party audits and recommend certification or otherwise.
Hang On – what if you don’t know what ISO50001 is?
OK so ISO50001 is a voluntary, international energy management standard that identifies, prioritises and records opportunities for improving energy performance across an organisation.
The standard requires organisations to continually assess energy management systems (EnMS) which means monitoring energy use and so unlike ESOS which is once every 4 years allowing for short term focus then forget it till the next phase, ISO50001 ensures organisations keep their eye on the ball all the time.
It is about much more than simple compliance. It brings discipline to the management of energy and formalises energy efficiency improvements.
