What is ISO 14001?
ISO 14001 was developed by the International Organisation for Standardisation to help businesses effectively understand and control their environmental impact and processes. ISO 14001 provides the vital framework needed to develop an environmental management system that helps them to achieve compliance, environmental efficiency and long-term sustainability.
This vital standard is suitable for organisations of all sizes, income, scope and industry, from SME’s, corporates and charities to the public sector.
What are the requirements of ISO 14001 in Surrey?
The requirements of ISO 14001 are a series of protocols, controls, procedures, measures and auditing methods which help organisations to easily identify, monitor, manage, control, and improve their environmental performance.
ISO 14001 contains 10 clauses, the first 3 are terms and definitions, the scope of the standard and the standard’s references. These contain no requirements but rather help to provide a deeper understanding of the intent and terminology which will be used throughout.
Clauses 4 to 10 document the requirements of ISO 14001 that businesses need to set up in order to manage their EMS. These clauses are;
- Clause 4 — Context of the company/organization
- Clause 5 — Leadership
- Clause 6 — Planning
- Clause 7 — Support
