ISO 14001:2015: A Revision to the Environmental Management Standard
ISO 14001, the world's most popular environmental management standard, revised and published
ISO 14001, the global benchmark for environmental management, has now been revised and officially published.
Why is ISO 14001 being revised?
All ISO standards are reviewed every five years to determine if a revision is necessary to keep it current and relevant for the marketplace. ISO 14001:2015 will respond to latest trends and ensure it is compatible with other management system standards, such as ISO 9001.
What are the main changes to the standard?
The new version includes a requirement to understand the organization’s context in order to better manage risk, with more emphasis made on leaders within organizations to promote environmental management. In addition, there is a shift towards improving environmental performance as well as improving the management system.
I am certified to ISO 14001:2004. What does this mean for me?
Organizations have a three-year transition period to align their environmental management system with the new standard.
