ISO 14001:2004

What is ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management Standard?
ISO 14001:2004, the international standard for Environmental Management Systems (EMS), will help your organization identify, and systematically reduce, any harmful effects it may have on the environment. By developing processes to lower energy and raw materials use, reduce waste and pollution, and mitigate the risk of emergency situations, your organization will not only be environmentally friendly - it will also be more profitable and efficient.

The ISO 14001 certification process is based on the “plan-do-check-act” principle and usually involves the following steps:

  • Preparatory meeting: definition of certification field
  • Optional pre-audit: gap analysis and evaluation of your current degree of standard fulfillment
  • Initial two-stage on-site audit: Stage 1: completeness review to verify the status of your organization for certification Stage 2: evaluation of implementation, including the effectiveness of your management system
  • Evaluation of EMS and certification: a certificate valid for three years is issued if results of Stage 2 audit are satisfactory
  • Surveillance audit: every 12 months to verify that the management system still comes up to standard and to monitor on-going improvement
  • Re-certification: after three years to confirm the on-going conformity of the entire management system
