ISO 14001:2015 Overview
Organisations certificated to ISO 14001:2004 have three years following the publication of ISO 14001:2015 to transition to the new standard. As a result, LRQA recognises that there will be ongoing demand for knowledge on ISO 14001:2015, until at least September 2018.
This document will provide you with a basic understanding of the differences between ISO 14001:2004 and ISO 14001:2015, and help you understand the areas where potentially we will need to provide focus to ensure successful certification to the new standard.
