The ISO 14001:2004 standard has been updated and replaced by ISO 14001:2015. Companies must migrate to the new ISO 14001:2015 standard system by September 14, 2018.
One major change in the standard requires companies to link their Environmental Management System (EMS) to the external realities affecting their company—specifically the new Clause 4.
This section of ISO 14001:2015 is brand new, never having previously been required.
Clause 4 can include elements such as climate change, storms and floods, air quality, water quality, land use, existing contamination, natural resource availability, biodiversity, cultural, social, political, regulatory, financial, economic, natural and competitive issues, whether international, national, regional or local. Clause 4 also requires that companies include all of the organization’s activities, products, services, strategic direction and capabilities (people, knowledge, processes and systems). It is a complex strategic requirement that will be a gap finding since prior to now, companies have not been required to gather all this information under ISO 14401:2004.
BSI’s ISO 14001:2015 Accelerator Pre-Certification Consulting Package* includes a gap assessment, planning tool and full completion of Clause 4 (new contextual analysis section) by an ISO 14001 lead auditor. BSI will conduct an onsite visit and quickly deliver robust recommendations for migration to the new standard.*
