While organisations have turned to ISO 14001 for more than twenty years to help them develop an EMS framework, the latest standard (ISO 14001:2015) has introduced a host of additional changes. This includes key improvements such as the increased prominence of environmental management within the organisation’s strategic planning processes, greater input from leadership, and a stronger commitment to proactive initiatives that boost environmental performance.
The ISO 14001:2015 standard supports an organisation to integrate environmental management practices to protect the environment by preventing pollution, minimising waste, and reducing energy & materials consumption. Based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act methodology, it provides a systematic framework for the organisation to establish environmental objectives and processes in accordance with the environmental policy, to implement the processes considering product life cycle perspective, to monitor and measure these processes against defined criteria and to take actions to continually improve. Hence, it is important that you are aware about the key changes in the revised EMS and prepare for the transition. To facilitate a better understanding of the ISO 14001:2015 revision requirements, we bring you a Webinar about the transition essentials & key changes in the standard.

Knowledge Sharing through Webinar
TÜV SÜD’s expert covers all aspects of ISO 14001:2015 ‘transition essentials’ over a complimentary webinar to ensure a seamless transition.
Points to be Covered:
• Summary of key changes
• Comparison between ISO 14001:2015 & ISO 14001:2004
• Transition requirements
• Q & A session
• On 15th September 2015, a new version of the standard was published.
• A three-year transition period, commencing on the date of publication, has been defined for the introduction and application of the ISO 14001:2015 standard. During this transition period, both the old and new standards will apply in parallel.
• After this time, all ISO 14001 certified businesses must be fully compliant with the updated standard. Organisations that have already implemented an EMS have to comply with the new requirements by 14 September 2018.
Hence, it is essential that you start planning for the revision today.
Preparation is the Key
With the deadline of 14 September 2018 fast approaching, it is time to prepare for the upgradation. If your organisation already holds ISO 14001:2004 certification, our DELTΔ audit provides a systematic approach in the transition to the new ISO 14001:2015 standard.
Organisations can also complete their transition to the revised standard within the scope of either a re-certification audit (recommended by TÜV SÜD) or a surveillance audit.
Experienced TÜV SÜD auditors will analyse your existing EMS to identify any gaps, and the potential need for action, ensuring a smooth path to re-certification.
For organisations tackling EMS for the first time, TÜV SÜD can help you achieve ISO 14001:2015 certification.
