ISO 14001 Certification Requirements

ISO 14001 was introduced in 1996 and revised in November 2004 and again in 2015 as an International Standard to appraise an organisation's Environmental Management Systems.

It came about because of growing concern worldwide about the environment and the effect of modern industrial processes on it. Naturally, the UK Government is trying to reduce the concentration of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere, and locally, councils are providing more and more recycling centres for bottles, cardboard, paper, redundant white goods etc.

The standard states at the point of assessment you do not have to be environmentally compliant but you do have to indicate that you have an action plan to improve year on year.

ISO 14001 and Your Business

How do environmental concerns impact on your business? Not only do we all have to take responsibility for our business processes - both ethically and practically, there are stringent punishments now in place for polluters of land, air and water, set out in statute.

ISO 14001 has many similarities to ISO 9001, now acknowledged internationally as the premier quality assurance award. And just in the way that many organisations and customers are insisting that their suppliers have ISO 9001, so in turn are demanding that their suppliers now acquire ISO 14001 certification.
