EHS Journal - Plane by Cecile K

In September 2015, ISO 14001, the international standard for environmental management systems (EMS), was revised. The new standard requires EMS to be more strategic and outward looking, delivering greater value to organizations that implement the standard. The International Aerospace Environmental Group (IAEG) and Ramboll Environ have developed a transition guidance document to help aerospace organizations and their supply chains transition to ISO 14001:2015.

The guidance document evaluates the changes and presents approaches to meeting the new requirements, providing case studies and examples.  Although focused on aerospace, the guidance document will be of use to any organization that is transitioning to or implementing the new standard.

The document provides information on seven key topics to help IAEG members transition to ISO 14001:2015:

  • Leadership and commitment
  • Internal and external issues
  • Determining the scope of the EMS
  • Life cycle perspective
  • Understanding the needs and expectations of interested parties
  • Risks and opportunities
  • Performance evaluation
