Certification to ISO 14001 Environmental Management

ISO 14001 certification brands your business as environmentally responsible, winning you recognition and new business opportunities. It helps you demonstrate how committed you are to reducing your environmental impacts, and to meeting stakeholder expectations of sustainability. 


How to get certified to ISO 14001

We make the certification process simple. After we have received your application, we appoint a client manager who will guide you and your business through the following steps.

  1. Gap analysis - 
    This is an optional pre-assessment service where we take a closer look at your existing environmental management system, and compare it with ISO 14001 requirements. This helps identify areas that need more work before we carry out a formal assessment, saving you time and costs.  

  2. Formal assessment - 
    This happens in two stages. First, we review your organisation's preparedness for assessment by checking if the necessary ISO 14001 procedures and controls have been developed. We will share the details of our findings with you so that you can close any gaps we have found. If all the requirements are in place, we will then assess the implementation of the procedures and controls within your organisation, to make sure that they are working effectively as required for certification.

  3. Certification and beyond - 
    When you have passed the formal assessment, you will receive an ISO 14001 certificate, which is valid for three years. Your client manager will stay in touch during this time, paying you regular visits to make sure your system does not just remain compliant, but that it continually improves.
