ISO 14001 Update to 2015

The new ISO14001:2015 Standard was published on 15th September 2015. The 2004 version will remain valid during the 3 year transition period. 18 months after publication, all accredited certificates will be to ISO14001:2015.

There are significant changes within the new release. Key changes include:

  • The adoption of Annex SL. In lay terms this means a common framework including major clause headings across all standards (including ISO 9001 and ISO 27001)

  • Consideration for the "Context of the Organisation"

  • Leadership and Commitment replace Management Responsibility, the emphasis shifting from ensuring to engaging

  • The consideration of risk and opportunities throughout the process approach

  • Less reliance on documented systems

  • Process focused approach
