ISO 14001

What is ISO 14001?

ISO 14001 is an international standard that gives requirements for an organisation’s Environmental Management System (EMS). It is part of a family of standards published by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) often referred to collectively as the ISO 14000 series. ISO 14001 was recently updated and the current version is ISO 14001:2015.

Why should my organisation implement ISO 14001?

Many companies see the introduction of a environmental management system as a major step forward in complying with environmental laws and regulations. Others simply react to customer demands that their suppliers should have suitable systems.

Why should my organisation apply for ISO 14001 certification?

Satisfactory assessment of your management system leads to the award of a certificate of registration. The value of a certificate of registration and its credibility depends on the organisation that issues it and the status that the organisation has gained in the market place. World Certification have achieved UKAS Accreditation to provide ISO 14001 certification and that enables clients to use the UKAS tick and crown logos on stationery and marketing material. Other benefits of registration could include:

  • Access to new markets
  • Some markets require ISO 14001 Registration, some markets favor companies with ISO 14001 Registration
  • Customer request
  • Many organizations are asked by a customer to obtain registration as a requirement to continue or to start doing business with them.
  • Providing your company with assurance that you meet, and will continue to meet, your legal and corporate policy requirements
  • Complying with environmental laws and regulations
