ISO 14001: 2004

ISO 14001 is a “generic management system standard” that has a set of requirements for implementing an environmental management system (EMS).

It can be applied to any organisation, whatever its product or service, in any sector of activity, and whether it is a business, public administration or government department.

The EMS should enable an organisation to develop and implement a policy and objective that takes into account legal requirements, specific requirements of the organisation, and environmental aspects.
