Overview of ISO 14001:2015

This first part introduces ISO 14001, explaining what it is, how it's used, and the purpose and benefits of an EMS.

Requirements of an Environmental Management System

This module takes a step-by-step look at the relevant clauses in the ISO 14001:2015 standard in order to understand what they mean and what your company needs to do to comply with them.

Documented Information

Clear, well-written, and non-bureaucratic documentation is an important part of an EMS.

A point worth noting here is that documents are used for storing and sharing information, while records are essentially hard copies of results (such as from an audit) or evidence of activities that have been performed. And while documents get revised from to time and are generally kept up-to-date, records are static and never revised.

Internal Auditing

This part introduces auditing techniques, including the fundamentals (audit methodologies), and the roles and responsibilities expected from a company's internal auditor.

  • Internal Auditing Basics
  • Audit Types
  • Roles and Responsibilities

Audit Records

Audit proceedings and findings must be documented according to ISO's specific requirements. The reports you compile (which show nonconformities and the corrective actions taken to address them) must be retained as they will be reviewed during the certification audit and subsequent surveillance audits. Points covered in this module include:

  • Audit Preparation
  • Conducting an Audit
  • Audit Reporting
  • Audit Completion and Follow-Up

Environmental Aspects

Implementing an ISO 14001:2015 EMS requires organizations to identify environmental aspects associated with their past, existing, or planned activities, products, and services. Organizations can manage these aspects by:

  • Identifying associated environmental impacts of products, activities and services.
  • Considering lifecycle perspectives with respect to environmental impacts within the supply chain or associated with product use, or the environmental impacts of end-of-life treatment and/or disposal.
  • Maintaining documented information regarding environmental aspects.
  • Prioritizing issues that could affect intended outcomes.

Who Should Take ISO 14001:2015 Auditor Training?

This course is ideal for:

  • Staff who've been appointed members of their company's ISO 14001 internal audit team.
  • EMS professionals who need a broader understanding of ISO 14001 audit practices.
  • Consultants who want to learn how to audit ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems and gain the associated professional certification.
