Certification Bodies (CBs) demonstrate competence to audit and certify organizations conforming to management systems standards. Accreditation
by a recognized and respected body ensures the impartiality and competence of the CB and fosters confidence and acceptance of the CB’s
certifications by end users in the public and private sectors.
CBs having their auditors EPI certified provides a prestigious pathway for proving the compentence of the CBs personnel.
The EPI ISO 50001 Lead Auditor certification scheme was developed to cover the tasks identified in both ISO 50003 and ISO / IEC 17021, and
ensures the competence requirements for personnel involved in the certification process for energy management systems, the duration of audits
and multi-site sampling.
