Effective Implementation of ISO 14001 provides a clear explanation of each requirement imposed by ISO 14001:2004 and describes how it compares to the comparable requirement in the original standard. It also presents the documentation developed by organizations from three discrete sectors – heavy industry; service; and government.
For readers who are designing and implementing an environmental management system for the first time, Effective Implementation of ISO 14001 goes beyond general description to identify the ways in which ISO 14001:2004 can be implemented within the constraints of business strategies, environmental imperatives, and regulatory requirements. For readers faced with maintaining a mature environmental management system, it assists the process of comparing existing approaches and activities with the revised requirements, identifying weak or missing elements, and modifying the environmental management system to conform to ISO 14001:2004.
