Environmental Management System ISO 14001:2004 provides the information and practical know-how required to facilitate a smooth adoption and incorporation of the latest revisions and enhancements put forth by the International Organization for Standardization. This unique work shows how to adopt or transition to the documentation procedures required for an Environmental Management System (EMS) using the 14001:2004 series of standards. These globally accepted procedures help eliminate waste and improve efficiency, while providing the means to achieve both local and international compliance.
This tool supplies step-by-step guidance on how to develop and implement an EMS that, with little effort, can be instantly applied to any process-related industry or organization interested in environmental compliance, whether it is regulated or not.
A complete, single-source reference, written in simple and precise language, the book puts the answers to complex and thorny issues at your fingertips. It includes samples of policy statements, objectives, targets, and programs that can be amended or adopted without wasting time re-inventing the wheel. The CD-ROM includes customizable Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) that can be downloaded, edited, printed, and easily tailored to incorporate changes and add organizational requirements. The SOPs exclusively refer to the documents specially required for compliance; however other formats are included to ensure that the soft copy can be easily used worldwide in a diverse range of industries and organizations.
The book helps minimize documentation and avoid the nightmare faced by management representatives at the time of certification. An effective time saver when you are in the process of writing and organizing documentation for certification and further improvement purposes, this book and CD-ROM package helps you easily translate the revised ISO 14001:1996 and ISO 14001:2004 standard requirements into immediate action.
