ISO 14001:2015, clause 9.2.2, states that “an organization should establish, implement and maintain an internal audit program (s)”. An audit program is a set of one or more audits planned for a specific time frame”, according to ISO 9000:2015.

So, your phrase means that the “EMS Management Representative or designate” should, every year, issue an internal audit program scheduling all audits to be performed, and with what scope for each in order to audit all ISO 14001 requirements.

Please check this article about ISO 9001, but applicable to ISO 14001 too - What is the ISO 9001 audit program, and how does it work? - https://advisera.com/9001academy/blog/2017/01/24/what-is-the-iso-9001-audit-program-and-how-does-it-work/at-is-the-iso-9001-audit-program-and-how-does-it-work/ and this figure:
