ISO 14001:2015

Environmental Management System

To many clients, this is what they are looking for their suppliers to have in place.  When you’re dealing with larger companies are they are ISO 14001 certified it makes it much easier for them if you are too.

ISO 14001 was first introduced in 1996 and specifies the actual requirements for an environmental management system. It applies to those environmental aspects which the organisation has control and over which it can be expected to have an influence.

ISO 14001 is often seen as the corner stone standard of the ISO 14000 series. However, it is not only the most well known, but is the only ISO 14000 standard against which it is currently possible to be certified by an external certification authority.

This standard is applicable to any organisation wishing to –

  • implement, maintain and improve an environmental management system
  • assure itself of its conformance with its own stated environmental policy (those policy commitments of course must be made)
  • demonstrate conformance
  • ensure compliance with environmental laws and regulations
  • seek certification of its environmental management system by an external third party organisation
  • make a self-determination of conformance
