    What is ISO 14001?

    The worlds first environmental management systems standard was published by BSI in

    1992 BS 7750

    In 1993 ISO set up a new technical committee to develop an international standard using

    BS 7750 as a basis.

    ISO 14001 was first published in 1996 and went through a revision in 2004 when minor

    changes were made

    In 2011 the 2nd periodic review of ISO 14001 commences

    Worldwide there are approximately 267,000 companies certified against ISO 14001*

    (* ISO Survey 2012)

    What is the aim of ISO 14001?

    To enable organizations to establish the systems and processes necessary to manage their environmental risk.

    Implementation of the standard is intended to lead to reducing operational costs, managing resources (natural and human) and showing

    commitment to improving your environment performance.

    Why the need for change?

    All standards are reviewed periodically

    In 2011 the ISO Technical Committee agreed that ISO 14001 should be revised

    There is a organizational requirement for a common format across all standards for ease

    of implementation and management

    The revision has considered the final report of the ISO/TC 207 SC1 Future Challenges for

    EMS Study Group

    The revision will also ensure the maintenance and improvement of the basic principles of

    ISO 14001:2004 as well as the retention and improvement of its existing requirements

    What are the proposed changes?

    The standard will been written in accordance with Annex SL, the new high level structure which will be common across all management systems providing:

    Core text

    Common terms

    Core definitions

    This will enhance the consistency and alignment of different management system standards

    The standard will still be based on PDCA with most of the previous requirements included but in different areas

    There is an aim to strengthen the incorporation of the EMS into the Organizations business processes

    There is an increased requirement for senior management to take a greater involvement in the environmental management system

    What is Annex SL?

    Annex SL is the new high level structure that will provide a common framework across all management system

    Annex SL has been designed to enhance the consistency and alignment of different management system standards

    Framework will provide matching sub-clauses against the top-level structure

    Common language applied across all management system standards

    What will the changes mean for organizations?

    No action is necessary or required by clients until the revision has been published and the final amendments are known

    Once the new version of ISO 14001 has been published, clients will need to transition to the new standard

    This will involve revising their processes and documentation in line with the new

    requirements Historically, clients have a 2 year period to transition to the new standard, however future

    details will not be available until after the new standard has been published Keep up to date with progress at www.bsigroup.com
