New for your ISO 14001 EMS - Context of the Organization

Wednesday, 24 February 2016
ASR Editor
One of the objectives of ISO 14001:2015 is the pulling together of an organization's environmental internal issues, external issues and interested parties that make up the firm's business environment or the Context of the Organization.

In the past, top management was never required to define the firm's business environment as it related to internal and external issues or any interested parties.

Addressing the Context of an Organization

Tuesday, 15 September 2015
ASR Editor
Central to maintaining a business is an understanding of the organization, its context as well as the needs and expectations of interested parties. Context could be expressed in an organization's existing vision, mission, policy or objectives.

Determining relevant internal and external issues is followed by the monitoring of those issues to achieve the intended results of the organization's business system. See ISO 9001:2015 or the ISO 14001:2015 for reference.

Take a look at your "Context of the Organization" and find opportunities for improvement.

Quality/Business Management Standards

Monday, 16 February 2015
ASR Editor
It is anticipated that in the next two years many of the quality management system standards will be revised.

As part of that process, users should keep in mind that in most cases there will be a three year implementation phase negating a grand rush to implement new or revised documents.
When revised standards are released, organizations will want to review the standard with all appropriate personnel, fully understand the scope of the changes, develop an action plan, and gradually implement.
