ISO 14001:2015 Overview

The purpose of this document is to provide organisation's with an insight into the newly revised environmental management system (EMS) standard, ISO 14001:2015. 

The standard has been subject to a comprehensive rewrite to ensure that its aims and purpose appropriately support the changing needs of today’s world and reflect the increasingly complex environment in which organisations operate.

Published on 15 September 2015, organisations certificated to ISO 14001:2004 have three years to transition to the new standard. As a result, Lloyd's Register recognises that there will be ongoing demand for knowledge on ISO 14001:2015, until at least September 2018.
