EMS Manual

Just one question please – is having an ISO 14001 manual a must? For instance we have the QMS (Quality Management System) manual for the ISO 9001 2015 which again serves as a standard guideline to both the auditee and the auditor.

Answer:

The EMS Manual is no longer mandatory in the new version of the standard, however, a good Quality Manual facilitates the job of the auditor, and gives him the opportunity to better audit the system but also it is a document where the organization presents itself, its environmental management system, and even its way of thinking and approach to its environmental system. In adition, it is also a common practice to include some requirements that are easier to document through a Manual.

To learn more about the Environmental Manual, you can see these materials:
