6.1.2.b Environmental aspects / condition

We were recently audited for ISO14001:2015. one of the findings is with regards to environmental aspect & condition. our question is when can an environmental aspect be considered an abnormal condition or normal condition. example of our environmental aspect is the use of electricity of natural resources, generation of noise (stamping process), etc.

Consider this situation:

Impact under normal, most likely, most frequent condition.

Unfortunately, due to a malfunction, or a breakdown, things that we cannot forecast, the situation can become like this:

I use as criteria for abnormality, frequency and not being able to forecast. For example, starting a boiler is different from keeping a boiler working. Emissions are different, due to different burning regime, but starting a boiler can be forecasted, it is not an abnormality.

The following material will provide you more information about aspects and impacts:
