BS EN ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management Systems. Requirements with Guidance for Use - Front

This standard specifies the requirements of an environmental management system (EMS) to control and improve a company's environmental performance. The international standard enables an organisation to formulate an environmental policy and environmental objectives, taking into account legislative requirements and information about significant environmental impacts. The standard also provides a framework for implementation and operation, checking and control, taking corrective action, newly updated continuous improvement, and management review.

Benefits derived from the implementation of BS EN ISO 14001 are:

  • Better environmental awareness within the organisation

  • Cost savings and reduction in resource usage

  • Enhanced efficiencies

  • Improvements in legislation compliance

  • Standards fits in well with companies' existing management system portfolio

The standard applies to those environmental aspects which the organization can control and over which it can be expected to have an influence. All the requirements in this standard can be incorporated into any environmental management system.

If you are certified to ISO 14001:1996 you will need to make the transition from the old standard to the new BS EN ISO 14001:2004.

Since first published in 1996 many changes and improvements have been implemented including:

  • Definition changes

  • Changing the focus of the standard from being an environmental management system to the organisation's management of its environmental aspects

  • More detailed checklists for inputs and outputs from the management review

  • Now aligned to ISO 9001.
