Amanda Lakeland who is one of our Auditors here at Interface NRM, has now successfully completed the CQI IRCA EMS ISO 14001:2015 Conversion Course with Alcumus – well done Amanda!

This course is designed to equip existing auditors of other management system standards with the knowledge and skills required to perform audits of environmental management systems (EMS) against ISO 14001.

ISO 14001 is an internationally agreed standard that sets out the requirements for an environmental management system. It helps organisations improve their environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste, gaining a competitive advantage and the trust of stakeholders.

If you would like to know more about ISO 14001:2015 for your company, further information on this can be found on our website here. Alternatively, one of our dedicated staff would be more than happy to help with any questions you may have. You can call us on 01952 288325, initiate a live chat or complete our online enquiry form.

September 2017 marks one year before all organisations currently certified to ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2008 need to be re-certified to the 2015 versions of these standards, for the continuation of their compliancy.

Failure to achieve certification to the 2015 standard by the deadline will mean the certificate is no longer valid.

If you are still to update your certification to the 2015 standards, you can contact one of our dedicated staff here at Interface NRM, who would be more than happy to discuss this further with you.

We can be contacted on 01952 288325, you can initiate a live chat or you can complete our online enquiry form.

This week has seen companies from the Construction & Service Industries, in Warwickshire and Stoke On Trent updating their certification to the new standards.

Additional information on these transitions can be found here for ISO 9001 And ISO 14001.

 

The Key Benefits of Implementing ISO 14001:2015 Into Your Business

ISO, Certification, ISO 14001:2015, ISO 14001
ISO 14001 is an internationally agreed standard that sets out the requirements for an environmental management system. It can help an organisation improve their environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste.

It can be easily integrated into an existing ISO management system I.E 9001, and is suitable for organisations of all types and sizes, whether they are private, not-for-profit or governmental.

It requires that an organisation considers all environmental issues relevant to its operation, such as air pollution, water and sewage issues, waste management, soil contamination, climate change mitigation and adaptation and resource use and efficiency.

As a result of implementing this into your business you can expect to be able to:

  • Demonstrate your compliance with current and future statutory and regulatory requirements.
  • Increase leadership involvement and engagement of employees.
  • Improve company reputation and the confidence of stakeholders through strategic communication.
  • Achieve strategic business aims by incorporating environmental issues into business management.
  • Provide a competitive and financial advantage through improved efficiencies and reduced costs.
  • Encourage better environmental performance of suppliers by integrating them into the organisations business systems.

Last week we certified clients from the landscaping and storage industries in Telford and Sheffield, who were looking to achieve their business aims by incorporating environmental issues into their business management.

Have you ever wondered how an ISO standard is developed?

How is an ISO standard developed?

The key principles in standard development are:

  1. Standards respond to a need in the market.
  2. Standards are based on global expert opinion.
  3. Standards are developed through a multi-stakeholder process.
  4. Standards are based on a consensus.

You can learn more about this on the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) website here.

You can also get involved in standards development, whether you are a consumer or in business you can be part of the next generation of standards. Find out more about getting involved.

This week we have been certifying against ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 18001 in Coventry, London and Winchester.
