ISO 14001 is Back in the News!

The revised standard was released September 2015 with a 3-year transition period. Full conformity with the new standard must be completed by September 2018. Key changes in ISO 14001:2015 require organizations to demonstrate:

  • Greater commitment from leadership
  • Greater protection for the environment, with a focus on proactive initiatives
  • More effective communication, driven through a communications strategy
  • Life-cycle thinking, considering each stage of a product or service, from development to end-of-life

EQM’s ISO auditors can develop a transition plan including gap assessment and training to guide your company through conformance with the revised standard.  Please contact Fred Nichols at fnichols@eqm.com or (317) 695-4712  if you would like to discuss how EQM may assist as your move forward.
