|Timeframe:||18 December 2012 to 17 December 2015|

Initial situation and requirements
Changhua Christian Hospital has joined the Taiwanese government’s energy management project, and is establishing an EnMS. The project includes monitoring the hospital’s main energy consumption items and the implementation of an EnMS in both the main medical centre (number of inpatient beds: 1,684; number of employees: 3,679; facilities: Phase 1, 2 and 3 buildings and Children’s Hospital, which provide clinical services) and Changhua Campus.
In compliance with government requirements, the hospital has hired TÜV Rheinland as a third-party auditor to audit its EnMS and certify compliance with the ISO 50001:2011 standards.
Our extensive experience in EnMS services and in-depth knowledge of international standards made TÜV Rheinland the preferred choice for Changhua Christian Hospital.
The certification audit was divided into three phases: a document review, an initial on-site audit (which involved checking the procedures and certain records) and a second on-site audit (which involved checking the records of all activities).
Our auditors have reviewed all of Changhua Christian Hospital’s EnMS-related activities, include energy review, energy baseline, targets, indexes, plan, etc.
Thanks to the collective experience and knowledge of the TÜV Rheinland team, Changhua Christian Hospital has become the first medical centre in Asia to obtain an ISO 50001 - L0 :2011 EnMS certificate (DAkkS), and is set to reduce its electricity consumption by 3% over the next three years.
