ISO 14001 Clause 6.1.4.2b

I need your wisdom in the best interpretation of 6.1.4.2b.  We have a list of compliance obligations and we are being asked to evaluate its effectiveness.  Initially, we said it’s 100% effective since all permits/licenses we have are all valid.  Is this how should the evaluation be based on the standard?

Your organization has a list of compliance obligations. If you mention clause 6.1.4 it is because previously there was some problem(s) with compliance obligations and your organization developed a project with a set of actions to be done.

Was that set of actions effective?

If they were effective there is no problem(s) with compliance obligations today. Something like:

What is important is that the problem(s) disappeared!

Now, if you want to follow the standard by the book you need to introduce clause 9.1.2 – Compliance evaluation.

In this case, the conclusions of 9.1.2 (compliance evaluation) are used to evaluate effectiveness as in 6.1.4 b)2 (check there the note to see clause 9.1)
