ISO 14001

ISO 14001 is a standard in the field of environmental management developed by the International Organization for Standardization.

The requirements of ISO 14001 are divided into five parts:

  • Environment Policy
  • Planning, including environmental risk analysis and environment plan
  • Implementation and execution
  • Checking and corrective actions
  • Management Review

The ISO 14001 system has been designed to be optimally integrated with ISO 9001.

The environmental risk analysis is the most important part of the standard. This analysis contains an assessment of environmental risks for all forms of possible contamination. These control measures must then be determined and  subsequently processed in an environment plan. The elaboration of an environmental management system must be properly adapted to the nature, scale and complexity of the organization.
