Behind the Scenes with ISO 14001

Posted in ISO 14001

ISO's Technical Committees TC 176 (ISO) and TC 207 (EMS) are in the process of determining how to deal with an ISO and EMS "Technical management board." This would mandate that all management system standards would have the same structure. This would set up a quality/environmental management system based on 10 clauses. ISO is now structured with 8 clauses, and EMS is developed based on 4 clauses.

Purpose behind the rewrite is to standardize all standards. The goal for release of these revisions is the end of 2014 but it may be 2015 before we see the actual documents.
Organizations can expect changes to both standards that add requirements including a segment on "risk management."
