Writing an EMS Manual

"I have been tasked to write an EMS manual and prepare my company for an audit of our ISO 9001 and 14001 systems. I am the second shift quality tech and have been asked to do this in my spare time, an hour or so a night. What do you suggest I do to get such a project started?”

Answer:
ISO 14001:2015 does not require an EMS manual. So, this is great news, you are free to design the content of your EMS manual. I like to consider an EMS Manual as a kind of ID card: Who are we? What do we do? How do we interact with the environment? What are our environmental priorities? How do we work in our EMS? What is the scope of our EMS?

The following material will provide you information about an EMS Manual:
