ISO 14001 Also Moves To FDIS Stage: Video Update and Supporting Documents from ISO
As a result of the November 2014 announcement that ISO 9001:2015 had moved to the FDIS, ISO recently announced that ISO 14001, (the environmental management standard) has also moved to the FDIS stage (Final Draft International Standard).
Here is that video update from ISO.org:
This video features Anne Marie Warris, Chair of the subcommittee reviewing ISO 14001. She briefly explains what is new and what’s next for the standard. You can also click here to read a summary statement in a brief Q & A format from ISO on what’s new with ISO 14001. Like the ISO 9001:2015 revision, changes to ISO 14001 include a focus on risk-based thinking.
The new version will include a requirement to understand the organization’s context in order to better manage risk, with more emphasis made on leaders within organizations to promote environmental management. In addition there will be a shift towards improving environmental performance rather than improving the management system.
ISO published the July 2014 ISO/TC 207/SC 1 scope document on the ISO 14001 changes at a conceptual level. You can download that document by clicking the image below to obtain it off of our Knowledge Center:
Further updates will also be posted on our “Countdown To ISO 9001:2015” support page. If you require any further information on ISO 14001, please contact email@example.com.
