The ISO 14000 Standard is part of a series of international environmental standards that provide a systematic approach for dealing with and managing environmental issues. ISO 14001 is seen as the cornerstone of the ISO 14000 series because it specifies a framework of control for an environmental management system (EMS). Currently, it is the only standard of the ISO 14000 series under which it is possible to be certified by an external certification body.
This factsheet explains what is involved in obtaining ISO 14001 certification. It explains how to go about setting up and monitoring an EMS. It outlines the steps to register for the standard and advises how to prepare for an assessment. It also gives information about costs and how to find a certification body.
