SGS has launched a suite of training and audit services to help companies transition from ISO 14001:2004 to the new version of the environmental management standard, which is due by the end of the year.
ISO/DIS 14001, the first formal draft of ISO 14001:2015, describes the potential requirements of the final version of ISO 14001:2015 that is expected to be introduced in Q3 2015. It includes an increasingly strategic approach to environmental management.
In addition, the updated standard will follow the Annex SL framework, a new, higher level structure that will make it easier to use in conjunction with other management system standards.
SGS provides a webinar introducing the new ISO/DIS 14001:2015 to help our prospects and clients understand the requirements of ISO/ DIS 14001.
To make the transition smooth and transparent, SGS’s experts can carry out a needs assessment against the requirements of ISO/DIS 14001. This exercise will provide firms with structured assistance to highlight the extent to which existing systems and controls cover the requirements of ISO/DIS 14001, or to identify an implementation action plan, where needed.
SGS’s introduction training courses help organizations understand the requirements of ISO/ DIS 14001. It says it is the first professional learning and development organization to offer these one-day courses as IRCA Approved CPD.
