ISO 14004 Improvements Begin With Environmental Aspects

Connie Glover Ritzert of Meredith-EMC and a US delegate to TC 207, SC 1, writes that the June 12-18, 2000, meeting of TC 207 was the first where WG 2 discussed actual language changes. As a US delegate to WG 2 and a participant in the Stockholm and previous meetings, Ritzert reports that WG 2 intends to expand and improve the guidance on determining environmental aspects and using this information in an EMS. She provides an inside look at the environmental aspects revision process, including the initial approach, areas of agreement and seven unresolved issues, and notes that the general direction so far is consistent with the US position going into Stockholm.
