I believe you’re enquiring about the cost of getting a company ISO 14001 certified.
The cost and time of getting ISO 14001 certification depend on two important variables: the dimension of the organization and its environmental status.
For example, concerning time. When there are no problems with compliance obligations according to Advisera’s experience, organizations using our Documentation Toolkit, from start to certification, need:

  • Companies of up to 10 employees - up to 3 months
  • Up to 50 employees - 3 to 6 months
  • Up to 200 employees - 6 to 10 months
  • More than 200 employees - 10 to 20 months

Without our Documentation Toolkit, they need more time.
As someone implementing management systems as a consultant for almost 30 years, I have plenty of experience where organizations promise resources and commitment before starting the project and then they fail.

For example, concerning costs you have to consider two factors:
· What is the present situation concerning compliance obligations? For example, I have worked with some organizations that had to spend a lot of money to correct their air emissions.
· Certification costs will depend on certification body to certification body but the main factor is the number of workers in the organization.
