Any organisation that is looking to better manage their environmental impact, stay compliant with relevant legislation and support the environmental objectives of their customers will benefit from certification to ISO 14001.

Suitable for businesses across various industries and of any type or size, it does not specify the levels of environmental performance that need to be achieved. Instead, it provides a flexible framework for managing legal requirements and self-determined environmental performance targets.

We provide organisations with comprehensive and professional ISO 14001 services in Kent that can help businesses to maximise the benefits of an environmental management system and achieve certification.

What is ISO 14001?

ISO 14001 is the international standard for Environmental Management Systems (EMS) and was developed to provide the vital framework needed for organisations to improve their environmental culture and performance.

The standard follows the ‘Plan – Do – Check – Act’ cycle (PDCA) that when followed, helps organisations to effectively manage and continually improve their environmental performance and effectiveness. When correctly implemented, this systematic approach means that organisations are able to better protect the environment and respond quickly to changing environmental conditions whilst still fitting in with their specific business needs.

For certain industries and sectors, it is becoming increasingly common that UKAS accredited ISO 14001 certification is a requirement needed in order to be able to supply to certain companies, government-funded bodies, local government departments and those concerned with environmental impact. Having certification can give you an advantage over competitors, help you access new markets and be able to apply for tenders that before would have been out of reach.

What are the ISO 14001 requirements?

The requirements provide a set of standard elements which are used to guide the implementation of an EMS through a series of protocols, policies, measures, controls, procedures, and auditing methods. These are broadly separated into 10 sections called ‘clauses’ and are as follows;

1 – Scope

2 – Normative References

3 – Terms and definitions

4 — Context of the organisation

5 — Leadership

6 — Planning

7 — Support

8 — Operations

9 — Performance Evaluation

10 — Improvement
