What does certification according to ISO 14001 mean?

ISO 14001 is the most comprehensive environmental management and audit system for continuous improvement of environmental performance of companies and organisations and is valid throughout the world.  It specifies requirements for your environmental management and includes the entire value chain. The standard is based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act model and assesses the environmental impacts of the processes and products of the certified organisation itself, but also upstream and downstream processes such as use of raw materials and logistics.

The standard offers additional essential elements, such as continuous improvement of environmental performance and transparency based on environmental reporting. And above all, the confirmation that legal regulations are fulfilled provides evidence of legal compliance, with positive consequences as regards liability, and reassurance for the employees within your organisation.  

The entire life cycles of products and services are considered in the certification process, and risks and opportunities are assessed. Because of its High Level Structure of Standards (HLS), it can be combined with other certifications into an integrated management system.

Your Route to Certification:

Certification to ISO 14001 is a two-step process: the first step consists of a review of documentation, and this is followed by a visit to your company site. The on-site visit and also the document review are intended to assess if your environmental management system fulfils the requirements of the standard(s).
