ISO14001:2004 Environmental management systems – Requirements with guidance for use specifies the requirements for an environmental management system (EMS), which provides a framework for an organisation to control the environmental impacts of its activities, products and services, and continually improve its environmental performance. This international Standard applies to those environmental aspects which the organisation can control and over which it can be expected to have an influence. It does not state specific environmental performance criteria.
ISO14001 is applicable to any organisation that wishes to:
- Implement, maintain and improve an environmental management system.
- Assure itself of its conformance with its stated environmental policy and demonstrate such conformance to others.
- Seek certification/registration of its environmental management system by an external organisation.
- Make a self-determination and self-declaration of conformance with this international Standard.
All the requirements in this Standard can be incorporated into any EMS. The revised ISO14001 is now easier to understand and use, and has more detailed checklists for inputs and outputs from the management review and has increased compatibility to ISO9001.
