Revision of ISO: 14001 - Environmental Management System

16/07/14

What is ISO 14001?

ISO 14001 Certification is a part of a series of international standards applicable to any organisation, anywhere relating to environmental management

Based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle, ISO 14001 Certification specifies the most important requirements to identify, control and monitor the environmental aspects of any organisation, and also how to manage and improve the whole system.

 

ISO 14001 version 2015 key proposed changes

In 2015 there will be a revision of the ISO 14001 standard. This revision is essential for systems to remain relevant in current climates. The elements that will be unique to the 2015 version of the 14001 standard are not yet finalised however are likely to contribute to these focus points located below:

- Big picture: integrate the environmental management into core business process

- New High level Structure (HLS): to align with other MS standards

- Leadership and strategic considerations: no delegation or policy, resources & responsibilities

- Risks and opportunities related to significant environmental aspects: broader consideration of external environment– political, social, financial etc.

- Live cycle perspective in value chain controls: determine level of control over other parties to integrate environmental requirements

 

Next Steps for ISO 14001 version 2015

A draft proposal of the ISO standard is due to be available from September 2014. We hope for the final revision to be available and take affect from Mid-2015. Bureau Veritas will be available for any support or queries you may have throughout the revision process of this standard. We will also include updates on our website to keep you informed along the way – Check the News Updates to ensure you are up to date with information as to how it may affect your business. Given the complexity of gaining agreement across many countries this process takes time and may ultimately lead to a delay.
