ISO 14001 – Enviromental

Environmental Management Systems – Requirements with Guidance for Use

ISO 9001:2015 was published by ISO on 15 September 2015. The scope of the standard has not changed. However the structure and core terms were modified to allow the standard to integrate more easily with other international management systems standards.

ISO 14001 is similar to ISO 9001 quality management in that both pertain to the process of how a product is produced, rather than to the product itself. As with ISO 9001, certification is performed by third-party organizations rather than being awarded by ISO directly. The ISO 19011 audit standard applies when auditing for 9001 and 14001 compliance.

The requirements of ISO 14001 are an integral part of the European Union‘s Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS). EMAS‘s structure and material requirements are more demanding, mainly concerning performance improvement, legal compliance, and reporting duties.
