ISO is calling for nominations for the 2013 edition


Celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2013, the award recognizes the implementation of innovative and efficient processes and solutions that ensure the provision of excellent services. It provides an opportunity to publicize and share best practice among ISO committees.

ISO Secretary-General Rob Steele says, “Your nomination will help recognize and disseminate excellent practices in standardization. It will also draw attention to the well-deserved merit of colleagues. I cannot encourage the ISO community enough to get involved.”

Nominations can be submitted by representatives of an ISO national member body, Chairs and Secretaries of ISO technical committees and subcommittees, and ISO technical programme managers. Nominations should be sent to by 31 March.

Last year the prize went ISO technical committee ISO/TC 242, Energy management, the team of experts who developed the ISO 50001 International Standard for energy management.

The standard provides a framework for industrial plants; commercial, institutional, or governmental facilities; or entire organizations to manage energy. It is estimated that that it could influence up to 60 % of the world’s energy use.
