JMSA Germiston signed up with the IEE Project in 2012 as a candidate plant for the implementation of an ISO 50001-based energy management system. The plant holds management system certification for ISO 9001/TS16949, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 and adopted the ISO 50001 approach as an integration and extension.
An IEE Project energy consultant facilitated a systems review and conducted an ISO 50001 initial audit. The expert then assisted JMSA to develop and implement an energy management system (EnMS) and energy efficiency measures were systematically implemented in both production and utilities.
