  • Who was responsible for the revision?
    The revision was conducted by an ISO technical committee called ISO/TC 207/SC 1, which is comprised of experts nominated by their National Standards Bodies and liaison organizations. See the ISO/TC 207/SC 1 homepage for more details.

 

  • I am certified to ISO 14001:2004. What does this mean for me?
    Organizations are granted a three-year transition period after the revision has been published to migrate their environmental management system to the new edition of the standard. After this transition period, companies that opt for third party certification will have to seek certification to the new version of the standard. The former version, ISO 14001:2004, and any certification to it, will be out of date. See further guidance from the International Accreditation Forum (IAF).

 

  • Do I have to be certified to the new standard?
    No, certification is not compulsory. For further information about certification and other types of third party assessment, this see our page on conformity assessment.

According to an International non profit environmental Organization, The Natural Resources Defense Council’s report, “Food production accounts for 80% of the country’s fresh water consumption, but the waste of food means 25% of the fresh water is actually wasted.”

“Pharmaceuticals and pesticides in waste could potentially accumulate in every loop of the treatment system and spread to the environment”. Read more ….. & ….. “Fly larvae composting could thus impede the spread of pharmaceuticals and pesticides into the environment.”
