  • Control of documents

    My question is focused on the control of documents. We implement an IMS, but as you are aware, we have common and specific clauses of the ISO standards for example 9001 & 14001 which call for common and specific documents (procedures, records, W.Is,). Now, in terms of document identification, can a specific procedure or record to 14001 or 9001 be called an IMS procedure, and can it bear an IMS code or number? Thank you!

  • Monitoring project objectives

    We have our certification of ISO. Recently we had a follow-up audit to maintain our ISO certification in Quality, Environment & Safety. One of the non-conformance items we received was as follows: Audit Finding
    QHSE Project Objectives and Targets ISO 9001:2015 Clause 6.0, ISO 14001:2015 Clause 6.0, AS/NZS 4801:2001 Clause 4.3
    Monitoring the achievement of project objectives was not done.

    Proposed Corrective Action: Project objectives will be monitored, and results of achievement will be recorded  

    Can you please advise if you have a template, we could use to monitor project objectives, going forward?

  • ISO 14001 number of electronic copies

    How many electronic copy's do you need to keep of the Environmental Management System (EMS) I have been told either right or wrong, that I need to keep a Master Copy and also a Working Copy. that I am not to use the master copy and only use the electronic working copy? 
    this does not make sense to me as if there is to be a change or review you would need to update both copies? what do you think, what is the right electronic process?
