Qualify for SEP 50001 Silver, Gold, or Platinum:


Use Scorecard

  • Use the SEP 50001 Scorecard and Declaration while implementing SEP 50001 (2019).
    • Some credits require additional documents when submitting the Declaration, so compile these materials along the way, i.e., “OS 6: Share SEP 50001 Experience and Data” and “CR 3: Promotion of ISO 50001.”

Confirm accuracy of Scorecard Declaration

  • Engage a 50001 CP EnMS (who has completed the SEP 50001 Specialist Training for 2019) to review and confirm the accuracy of the Declaration by entering his or her name, title, email, and phone number on the Declaration.
    • If this 50001 CP EnMS wasn’t involved with implementing ISO 50001, then an onsite review by this CP EnMS is required.  
    • The 50001 CP EnMS can be a staff member within your organization or an external consultant. (Find a 50001 CP EnMS (select "CPEnMS" for "Certification Type", and then click the Search button). Qualified individuals must have both the SEP 50001 (2019) program competency and one of the following certifications: 50001 CP EnMS or CP EnMS – Industrial.)
  • Engage top management to review the Declaration and confirm its accuracy by entering his or her name, title, email, and phone number on the Declaration.

Submit Scorecard Declaration for Review

  • Submit the Declaration to the Administrator, 
    The Administrator will review the Declaration and notify you of approval, or if needed, request a call or webinar for more details. The Administrator will provide a certificate indicating the level of recognition achieved.

This recognition is valid for up to three months beyond the expiration date of the SEP 50001 certificate. Earn additional Scorecard points and jump up a level at 12 and/or 24 months after certification.
