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 straightforward. 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 so that if we find gaps, you can close them. And if you meet all the requirements we'll then assess your site and operations, completing the formal checks for certification.
- 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.
