About the ISO 14001 Standard
ISO 14001 is an international standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) to enable an organisation of any type or size to develop and implement a policy to manage the primary environmental issues through awareness and assessment of applicable legal requirements, objectives for improvement, assignment of responsibilities, competent personnel, communications, procedures, controls and monitoring, emergency response capability, self correction and assessment, and internal reviews. These processes are based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle.
Your organisation's environmental policy drives the ISO 14001 certification process. The way you develop, implement and review the policy is what Telarc looks for when assessing your system. Key elements are the structures, planning activities, responsibilities, practices, procedures, processes and resources you employ to implement your environmental policy.
Telarc can be instrumental in the success of your EMS. Our auditors are trained, capable and motivated to bring value and credibility to your environmental system, while assessing its conformity to ISO 14001.
Telarc recognises that the standard is meant to work for all types of organisations, and the manner in which it is assessed will be appropriate to your business. We have extensive capabilities to conduct audits covering multiple standards and specifications, and we routinely offer integrated environmental, quality and health and safety audits.
