Cautious welcome for ISO 14001
Published: 02 January, 2015
CEDREC reports it has given a cautious welcome to news that the revision to the ISO 14001 international standard has been approved for final draft status.
However, the online legislation specialist is also voicing concerns over its implementation and is urging businesses to start preparing now for its likely impact. Strong support from ISO member bodies for the draft standard has seen the revision move towards the final approval stage. But this agreement is in contrast to the views of environmental professionals who will be charged with implementing the revised standard. Research conducted by Cedrec back in August revealed that there is significant uncertainty about the impact of the new standard on management system operations. It showed that nearly two-thirds (62%) of environmental professionals don't know how the changes will affect their management systems.
