ISO 14001:2015 Transition Training


The new version of the ISO 14001 Environmental Standard features an altered structure and new requirements to reflect how increased globalization has changed the way business is done. This course is for individuals who are already familiar with the ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Standard and are involved in transitioning their company to ISO 14001:2015, including planning, implementation and supervisory activities. It is also ideal for auditors who will be auditing to the new standard.

The course covers:

  • Changes to the standard and their impact on a company’s Environmental Management System (EMS) and Internal Audit Program
  • The Annex SL framework, including context of the organization, leadership, planning and support
  • Methods for meeting and auditing new or enhanced requirements, such as risks and opportunities, leadership and commitment, the life cycle perspective and clarification of the confusing requirements around documented information
  • The business approach on how to use your ISO 14001-based EMS to benefit the performance of the company while meeting the new requirement to integrate with other business processes

Participants will be able to identify gaps in their company’s current EMS and be prepared to plan the transition to the ISO 14001:2015 revision.

Prerequisite: Knowledge of ISO 14001:2004 and key principles of an EMS
