The reason why we want to endorse ISO 50001 self-declaration

We, EnMS-Doc Associates, from the following thoughts hope that self-declaration of ISO 50001 will be a common practice globally in the very near future.

(1)  Prime purpose of energy management is not only to reduce energy consumption per unit
      of output but is a business operation how to maximize output per unit of energy       consumption.

(2)  Unlike managing how to prevent negative impacts, energy mnagement is to produce the
      highest value and quality goods or services at the lowest energy consumption to gain       global competitive advantage.

(3)  The business issues such as how much added value created have to be self-evaluated       within the energy user organization.

(4)  When carring out sustainable business business development, the organization must       decide [1] to value the benefit of obtaining certification through the third party certification       body; or [2] to value the benefit of taking the essence of gaining energy performance       improvement by concentrating in energy management operation, leading to performing       self-evaluation to declare voluntary certification.

(5)  Authenticity of self-declaration is largely depended on how the organization effectively       communicates its commitment in thier sustainablity and CSR practices.

(6)  The most important element of the communication is to establish a solid documentation       ensuring the continual energy performance improvement as the energy management       operation is properly executed in harmony with the documentation.

(7)  In other words, when a solid documentation is established for energy management       operation and provided it is executed in harmony with the contents, the self-declaration       is immovable even facing an sudden inspection without notice.

(8)  Even when EnMS audit is performed, it is anticipated that more than 80 % audit activities       will be time spent on evaluating the documentation. This is because the quantitative       evaluation of the energy performance improvement, defining baseline and EnPI are done       through records of data and documents supporting them to verify the compatibility to the       requirements.

In order to support the ISO 50001 self-declaration motive, those who benefit from must voice to move forward. Please provide your comments regarding ISO 50001 self-declaration. We will continue to endorse so the self-declaration system is soon in place. We also believe certification bodies will benefit from the system, and we see some organization are already coming up with services promoting the self-declaration.
