Superior Energy Performance 50001 Program - Requirements for verification bodies for use in accreditation or other forms of recognition

Certification of an energy management system and verification of its energy performance by a competent verification body (VB) provides assurance that the organization has implemented a system that conforms to ISO 50001 and has attained verified energy performance improvement in accordance with the Superior Energy Performance 50001 Program (hereinafter, SEP) requirements.  This document specifies requirements for VBs performing SEP certification and energy performance verification. Observance of these requirements is intended to ensure that verification bodies verify conformance to SEP requirements in a competent, consistent and impartial manner, thereby facilitating the recognition of such bodies and the acceptance of their certifications on a national and international basis.  This document serves as a foundation for facilitating the recognition of SEP verification in the interests of international trade.  Certification to SEP requirements provides independent demonstration of energy performance improvement.  Conformity assessment and verification of energy performance provides value to the organization, its customers and interested parties.  Auditor competence is addressed for SEP through this document and the personnel certification schemes from the Institute of Energy Management Professionals (IEnMP).  Note that the bodies that verify energy performance in accordance with the requirements of the SEP Program are referred to as verification bodies or VBs. This wording should not be an obstacle to the use of this document by bodies with other designations that undertake activities covered by the scope of this document.
