As with the revision of ISO9001, ISO14001 Environmental Management Systems is also undergoing revision, the planned publication date being early 2015. Here is a link to an LRQA Whitepaper providing background on the likely changes to the document.
As with ISO9001 we are keeping our eyes on the revisions to enable us to provide a smooth transition for our customers.
It is expected that Certificated Companies will have 3 years to complete the transition from the current to the new standard. That may seem like a long time but it will be better to address the new requirements quickly rather than leaving it to the last moment.
If you would like to discuss Certification to ISO14001 call 01434 230580.
