Some of our Frequently Asked Questions regarding the ISO 14001:2015 update
Who is it for?
This Standard is perfect for any SME, multi-sites and larger organisations, no matter the nature of the business.
What is it for?
The Standard helps organisations achieve industry regulated requirements to demonstrate to stakeholders that you consider the environment, and could give you more success when applying for tenders.
It also provides help on how to integrate the use of environmental performance evaluation techniques (EPE) and how to seamlessly merge Environmental Management Systems (EMS) with other compatible management systems, such as ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems (QMS).
This Standard is also very useful for multi-sites, as it provides a steady framework all sites can work to when implementing ISO 14001.
How can my business benefit?
The Standard can help your organisation develop, whilst still reducing the environmental impact of your organisational growth. It aids in enhancing your reputation with customers, stakeholders and the public, whilst also meeting regulatory Standards set by the industry, as well as local authorities and the government and assists you in the Pre-Qualification Questionnaire (PPQ) stage when applying for tenders. For many industries, an up-to-date ISO 14001 certificate is a necessity to be considered for a tender.
How is this different to my ISO 14001:2004 Standard?
The Standard was updated to make sure it seamlessly provided continual help with your business processes, enabling you to save money and deal with the environmental challenges that lie ahead in the near future. Whilst it still maintains a phased approach when managing risk and legislation compliance, other phases and stages have been updated.
