LCC Energy Management System Audit 15th December '21

Louth County Council Energy Management System Audit – 15th December 2021


Following a lot of work and a three day audit Louth County Council was granted a three year Certification of Registration for our Energy Management System (EnMS) by the NSAI under ISO50001.2018 in March 2021 for ‘the management of the electrical energy, thermal energy and other fuels usage within public buildings, public lighting and transportation under the direct control of the authority.’


ISO50001.2018 is an international standard which specifies requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and improving an energy management system (EnMS). The intended outcome is to enable an organisation to follow a systematic approach in achieving continual improvement of energy performance and the EnMS.


As part of the accreditation process a surveillance audit is carried out within 12 months from the date of certification to check that continual improvement is indeed happening.


Louth County Council was delighted to get positive feedback following the surveillance audit by the NSAI on the 15th December on our ISO50001.2018 Energy Management System Accreditation. The Energy Team in Louth County Council worked hard despite challenges presented by COVID to not only maintain the energy work done in previous years but to improve on it.


When issuing the report on the surveillance audit, NSAI Auditor Donal Harlow complimenting Staff and Management of Louth County Council commented: “The result is positive with no findings, and evidence of a lot of positive work done by the energy team, a lot of positive planning and action by the council management team”
