Our expert ISO 14001 Consultants
We will work with you to design, document, implement and operate a simple environmental management system (EMS) which meets all the certification requirements of ISO 14001.
We will design the system around your existing business and environmental practices where ever possible, helping you to establish the necessary controls to ensure you are in compliance with relevant legislation, and enabling you to identify and attend to areas where you do not comply to the ISO 14001 certification standard.
Once the system has been implemented, we will recommend you for the initial audit visit from a accredited external assessment body. We will then arrange for your system to be fully audited by one of our own auditors, and the final ISO 14001 requirements will usually take place within 3 months of the initial audit visit (depending upon the external assessment body).
