ISO 14001:2015 Overview

Course Description
ISO 14001 is a global environmental management system that has been adopted by thousands of companies all over the world. The intent of ISO 14001 is to provide a framework for a holistic, strategic approach to an organization’s environmental policy, plans, and actions. The benefits of implementing its framework include increased efficiency in the use of energy and resources as well as a reduction in waste outputs.

The 2015 revision to ISO 14001 is based on the PDCA approach, and clauses follow this structure:

  1. Introduction
  2. Scope
  3. Normative references
  4. Terms and definitions
  5. Context of the organization
  6. Leadership 6: Planning
  7. Support
  8. Operation
  9. Performance evaluation
  10. Improvement

Anyone familiar with ISO 14001:2004 will notice that the ISO 14001:2015 Standard represents a significant change in structure. This revised format, in addition to the adoption of Annex SL, will consist of multiple discipline-specific requirements to make it a fully functional environmental management system standard.

Join QSG as we map out the latest versions of the revisions to ISO 14001. We will provide the tools and techniques to help you understand the spirit and letter of these new revisions, as well as give you the latest information available from the technical committees to help you and your organization adopt this new approach.
