Be the first to upgrade your existing ISO 14001 Environmental Management System (EMS) in line with the new standard ISO 14001:2015 by attending this 2-day training course.

The ISO 14000 series of standards address various aspects of environmental management and ISO 14001 is one of the world’s most widely used environmental management system standards. ISO 14001 standard provides practical tools for organizations looking to identify and control their environmental impact and continually improve their environmental performance.

ISO 14001 standard has been technically revised and the new standard, ISO 14001: 2015 was released on September 15, 2015. This third edition of the Standard cancels and replaces the ISO 14001: 2004.

The Standard has undergone significant revisions and many new requirements have been incorporated to ensure demonstrated improvement in the environmental performance. The High Level Structure (Annex SL) of the Standard is one of the key highlights of the changes and helps the organizations to set up an effective environmental management system that is integrated and aligned with the business strategies of the organization.

This 2-day training course will give attendees the background to understand the new requirements and more importantly, it will focus on strategies and provide tools to implement the new Standard. Practical examples and interactive exercises will be used throughout the course.
