ISO 14001:2015 Transition

ISO 14001:2015 recognizes environmental management doesn’t happen in a vacuum. Customer, government and supplier input must be combined with leadership, product life-cycle responsibility, expanded documentation (and more) to improve your environmental performance.

You already have an Environmental Management System (EMS) in place. We teach you how to address the updated requirements of ISO 14001 without reinventing your system, or adding a lot of superfluous paperwork. We will help you figure out where you may need to augment or amend your system to meet the updated requirements of ISO 14001.

Why not have your whole team attend the QMII 14001:2015 Transition Course? Our instructors will ensure your team understands point-by-point how to apply ISO 14001 principles and requirements to your system. Our transition course includes an action planning workshop for addressing the new ISO 14001:2015 requirements within your existing processes and systems.  Choose a one or two-day option.

Through our ISO 14001:2015 Transition course, you will learn about the latest changes to ISO 14001, how they affect your management system and the steps you need to take to prepare your organization to meet the new requirements. Students will be able to:

  • Identify the latest changes in the ISO 14001:2015 standard
  • Identify how the changes affect your EMS
  • Prepare transition plans for their company to meet the new requirements of ISO 14001:2015
  • Identify changes in how the new standard is interpreted and implemented
  • Apply best practice advice for transition to their own EMS
  • Senior Management
  • Those responsible for transitioning their organization’s EMS to meet the new requirements
  • Those considering implementing an environmental management system
  • ISO 14001 Auditors and environmental professionals
  • Individuals directly involved in the planning, implementing, maintaining or auditing of an EMS conforming to ISO 14001.

This course also benefits a range of professionals including quality managers and directors, business process owners/managers, supply chain/purchasing managers, chief executives and directors.
