ANSI/MSE 50028-1-2019

Superior Energy Performance 50001 - Program-Additional Requirements for Energy Management Systems

This American National Standard specifies the additional requirements for the Superior Energy Performance 50001 Program (hereinafter, "SEP") utilizing the energy management system (hereinafter, “EnMS”). This American National Standard is used in conjunction with ISO 50001 Energy management systems – Requirements with guidance for use, and it can be aligned or integrated with other management systems. This American National Standard is applicable to any organization that wishes to ensure its conformity to the requirements of SEP and desires to demonstrate such conformance to others. This can be confirmed by certification to SEP by an ANAB accredited organization called an SEP verification body and certification to ISO 50001 requirements by an ANAB accredited ISO 50001 certification body or a ANAB accredited SEP verification body. Organizations certified to the SEP 2012 or SEP 2017 Programs must transition to SEP 2019.

ANSI/MSE 50028-2-2019

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.

ANSI/MSE 50021-2016
