The internal and external accreditation personnel increased its awareness of the provisions of ISO 50001:2018 and ISO 50003:2014, fulfilled a number of practical tasks and passed an appropriate self-assessment test.

Thus, NAAU fulfilled the requirements of IAF Resolution 2017-14 – Transitional Arrangements for the revision of ISO 50001:2011 regarding measures required for the transition of accredited conformity assessment bodies to the revised standard ISO 50001:2018 in increasing the competence of NAAU accreditation personnel.

The deadline for the transition to ISO 50001:2018 for accredited CABs is 18 months (21 February 2020) from the date of publication of the revised standard.

NAAU expresses its gratitude to the UNIDO/GEF UKR IEE Project for the high professional level demonstrated in the course of organizing and conducting this training.
