Provide some information regarding implementation & documentation of ISO 14001 in an organisation. What are the things required for ISO 14001 certification and advantage of certification for an organisation?
The first step in the implementation of ISO 14001:2015 is to conduct a GAP analysis to determine to what extent the organization already meets the requirements of the standard. The next step is to develop project plan with defined activities and documents to be created in order to achieve full compliance with the standard. Then you need to create documents and update your processes, so they align with the standard.
After the implementation, you need to conduct internal audit and management review to ensure that your EMS (Environmental Management System) is compliant with the standard and finally you can hire a certification body to conduct a certification audit and issue your company the certificate.
