Answer:

In order to identify relevant interested parties you need to consider all institutions, organizations and people that affect your EMS (Environmental Management System) or can be affected by it. There are internal and external interested parties. Interested parties include employees, top and mid management while external interested parties include customers, suppliers, regulatory bodies and local community. The organization must, not only identify interested parties but also to decide what interested parties are relevant to the organization and determine their needs and expectations towards company's EMS. For more information, see: How to determine interested parties according to ISO 14001:2015 https://advisera.com/14001academy/blog/2019/08/27/key-iso-14001-benefits-to-customers/nowledgebase/how-to-determine-interested-parties-according-to-iso-140012015/

The standard requires from top management to define Environmental Policy and environmental objectives, to assign roles and responsibilities within EMS and to provide r esources for functioning of the EMS. Most of those requirements are meet by actions rather than by documents and procedures and they are also audited accordingly. All these requirements are placed in clause 5 Leadership and basically, the top management must only define the policy and that is the only requirement beside the objectives that must be documented.
