Procedures vs processes

In your demo, we only talk about writing procedures. I would like to know if the processes are not mandatory? You do not mention it. IF I understand the update just rest these 12 procedures?

Answer:

The process approach is required by ISO 14001 and it is demonstrated by applying requirements of the standard to appropriate processes. For example, clause 8.1 Operational controls, contains specific requirements for design and development and purchasing among other, more general, requirements for operational control. But, it doesn't mean that you need to create a process model or to document process procedures. If you implement only ISO 14001, you will need to document only operational controls for the processes and that only to the level you determine as necessary.

For more information about mandatory documents, see: List of mandatory documents required by ISO 14001:2015 https://advisera.com/14001academy/blog/2019/08/27/key-iso-14001-benefits-to-customers/nowledgebase/list-of-mandatory-documents-required-by-iso-140012015/
