14001:2015 Countdown to certification – Clause 4.1

by | Nov 16, 2017 | Regulations

Understanding the Organisation

The new version of ISO 14001 applies the Annex SL format which will be common to all future standards and make it easier for organisations to integrate their management system requirements.

Clause 4.1 refers to understanding the organisation and its context and this requires a business to determine the external and internal issues that may affect the ability of the EMS to achieve its intended outcomes.

Organisations should have identified their internal and external interested parties and identified the issues that may impact upon their EMS. Many companies are taking the PESTLE approach to identify these issues.

SEL Group can assist in providing an ISO 14001:2015 gap analysis audit and ISO 14001:2015 Internal Auditor transition training.
