Environmental Management System

ISO 14001:2015

ISO 14001 is the internationally recognised Environmental Management Systems standard. It provides a framework that organisations can follow to manage their environmental responsibilities and risks.

The Environmental Management System standard, ISO 14001:2015, when implemented, is a strategic activity that helps manage environmental aspects, fulfil compliance obligations, and address risks and opportunities.

As a part of the ISO family of standards, ISO 14001 can easily be integrated with other management system standards, most commonly ISO 9001.

Best Practice is JAS-ANZ accredited to provide Certification to this standard.

How Do You Get Certified To ISO 14001?

STEP 1
OPTIONAL GAP ANALYSIS

Performed by Best Practice, we evaluate your management system to each clause of the relevant standard. This will identify the level of compliance that your existing management system has.

Best Practice provides an assessment report outlining any faults in your management system that needs to be addressed prior to certification.

STAGE 2
STAGE 1 ASSESSMENT

The evaluation of your management system documentation, including policies, processes, management review records, scope and context as well as system implementation.

This sets the foundation for the stage two assessment.

STEP 3
STAGE 2 ASSESSMENT

Best Practice needs to verify that the documented requirements of the standard are implemented across your business.

During an E-Audit an assessor will remotely partake in discussions with relevant individuals in your business.

Your management system is assessed and verified as being implemented. 

STEP 4
CERTIFICATION

Once your stage two assessment is verified and the process is complete, a 'Statement of Certification' is issued, confirming compliance with the relevant standard.

This certification is valid for a three-year period from the date of issue.

Regular surveillance assessments will be performed at a minimum of once every 12 months to maintain your certification.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BEING ISO 14001 CERTIFIED?

Being certified to ISO 14001 shows your stakeholders that you take environmental management seriously, which is topical in a modern business context, as well as enabling your organisation to bid on projects that it wasn’t previously able to such as large-scale, government or council tenders.

WHY DO I HAVE TO GET ISO 14001 CERTIFIED?

There’s no mandate for organisations to get ISO 14001 certification, however, more proactive organisations will see the value in getting certified to show their clients and suppliers they take environmental concerns seriously, as well as being able to bid on large tenders that often require organisations to be certified.

What Are The Requirements of ISO 14001?

ISO 14001 requires your organisation to take into account environmental concerns to minimise its footprint. This can be inside the organisation or extend to suppliers as well as the end deliverable.
