ISO 50001 certification (also known as “registration”) is a third-party audit performed by a certification body such as CFC who, upon verification that an organization is in compliance with the requirements of ISO 50001, will issue an ISO 50001 certificate. This certification is then maintained through regularly scheduled annual surveillance audits by the registrar, with re-certification of the Quality Management System performed on a triennial basis.
