ISO 14001Environmental Management Systems
“Assisting you to make the process work”
The pressure to meet stringent environmental requirements placed upon companies has never been greater. As consumers move their focus towards sustainability rather than purely price, Industry must respond by decreasing its environmental impacts and improving its use of raw materials and recycling. The ISO 14001 Standard is not designed to tell you how to manage your business; rather it is a tool you can use to improve the efficiency of your business systems and environmental performance.
The pressure to meet stringent environmental requirements placed upon companies has never been greater. As consumers move their focus towards sustainability rather than purely price, Industry must respond by decreasing its environmental impacts and improving its use of raw materials and recycling.
Sound environmental management relates to identification of potential impacts, management of these issues and measurement of the success of your management programs. The internationally recognised ISO 14001 series of Standards is a good starting point to assist companies to identify the areas within their operations where they can improve their environmental performance.
The ISO 14001 Standard is not designed to tell you how to manage your business; rather it is a tool you can use to improve the efficiency of your business systems and environmental performance.
How will your business benefit from certification to this Standard?
- Certification to an internationally recognised third party Standard such as ISO 14001 is increasingly becoming a condition of contract within Industry. More and more companies require suppliers to have this certification to demonstrate strong environmental management within their operations.
- The ISO 14001 system can be utilised within your business to improve efficiency and reduce costs by standardising processes and procedures, saving your staff time and your business money.
- Management systems certification can be used as a competitive advantage particularly in the tender process, leading to increased tender success and increased business opportunities. ISO 14001 is widely recognised as a minimum requirement for exporters and Defence contractors.
It is becoming increasingly more difficult to comply with the ever expanding requirement for companies to maximise their product quality, whilst minimising their environmental footprint as well as working safer to protect their employees.
To overcome these issues, QCS(E) offers an Integrated Systems Program (ISP). This program allows your company to meet the requirements of the combined Quality, Environment and Occupational Health and Safety related issues seen as critical by your customers.
QCS(E) uses auditors who hold accreditation to all three programs to conduct the ISP audits. This significantly reduces your audit cost because one auditor does all the work rather than using three separate auditors. It also allows your staff to develop a strong working relationship with a single individual leading to enhanced service provision and increased benefits for your company.
Stage 1 Audit
A QCS(E) auditor visits your facility to ensure that all key business activities have been included in the system documentation. Our auditor will advise you of any issues requiring attention as part of the report provided. This is an opportunity for you to ask questions about the Stage 2 audit.
Stage 2 Audit
This is the formal certification audit. The QCS(E) auditor will assess implementation of the system within your business and compliance with the requirements of your chosen Standard. Once this audit has been completed successfully, QCS(E) will issue a certificate of registration to you.
