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 meet 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.
- 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 money.
- Formal assessment -
This happens in two stages. First we review your organization'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 via our Assurance Portal, so that if we find gaps, you can close them.
Next, if all the requirements are in place, we’ll assess the implementation of the procedures and controls within your organization to make sure that they are working effectively as required for certification of ISO 14001.
- 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 doesn’t just remain compliant, but that it continually improves and adds value to your organization.
You’ll be able to access all the information related to your certification via our BSI Assurance Portal. Available 24/7, you can view essential information, such as your next 12 months of visit dates, audit reports, and certificates to support you with managing your BSI assessments and promoting your success.
