What’s New in ISO 14001?

There’s never been a better time to achieve ISO 14001 certification:

• Uniformed ISO clause structure (Annex SL).
• More Practical Risk based approach.
• Less mandatory documents.
• No more preventive actions!
• More emphasis on the ‘context’ of your organisation.
• More emphasis on the ‘leadership” of your organisation.
• Better integration with other standards.

ISO 14001 Certification Process

If you have an existing ISO 14001 certification the process will vary depending on your certification body however in general there is a 3 year transition period.

Some certification bodies are using scheduled surveillance visits to make the transition, while others are requiring additional days to cover the changes.

New to Certification? We can recommend UKAS certification bodies that are ready to begin your ISO 14001 journey with you.
