ISO 14001 was first published as a standard in 1996 and it specifies the requirements for an organisation’s environmental management system. It applies to those environmental aspects over which an organisation has control and where it can be expected to have an influence.
Who is it relevant to?
- implement, maintain and improve an environmental management system
- assure itself of its conformance with its own stated environmental policy
- demonstrate conformance
- ensure compliance with environmental laws and regulations
- seek certification of its environmental management system by an authorised external certification body
- make a self-determination of conformance
In addition, ISO 14001 is designed to be compatible with other standards such as ISO 9001 (Quality), ISO 27001 (Information Security) and ISO 50001 (Energy). Any combination of these complementary standards can be integrated seamlessly. They share many principles, so choosing an integrated management system can provide you with outstanding value for money.
