This checklist is based on the information provided in the ISO 50001:2018 international standard. The checklist is best used by trained and
practicing auditors to evaluate or assess the Energy Management System (EnMS) requirements based on the standard. You will see questions on
the checklist that refer to the standard and for each clause provisions are made for additional questions.
The auditors are expected to keep in mind that the standard does not requires mandatory procedures for the various system processes; however,
the auditors will expect documented information to be available because in the clauses of the standard, the phrase such as ‘documented
procedures’ is used to specify that a process, a method, a system, a work instruction, or an arrangement be documented.
The auditors must use a great deal of discretion and therefore must be careful and thoughtful prior to establishing a deficiency against a
requirement. Evidence for visible top management leadership, commitment and energy management action must be looked for.
The bold numbers and tittles used in the first two columns of the checklist indicate the “Requirements” and may be referred to on nonconformity
reports prepared by the auditor.
During assessment of each requirement, auditors record the status of the evaluation by indicating in the right-hand column a
Yes - for Acceptable Condition or No - for Deficient Condition
