What is ISO 14001?

ISO 14001 is the internationally recognized standard for establishing and maintaining an effective environmental management system (EMS) within organizations. The EMS helps organizations identify, manage, monitor, and continuously improve their environmental performance.  It provides a framework and defines the requirements that organizations must meet to manage the environmental impacts related to their activities. Based on these guidelines, organizations can establish the necessary policies and procedures that actively reduce their impact on the environment. At the same time, organizations can identify, plan and mitigate potential environmental risks to comply with current legislation, regulatory requirements and internal environmental policies, and achieve environmental objectives and targets.

What are IQC’s ISO 14001 Audit services?

IQC’s ISO 14001 EMS audit involves a structured assessment of an organization’s environmental management system to determine its alignment with the requirements outlined in the ISO 14001 standard. Our audit is conducted impartially and systematically to evaluate the effectiveness of the EMS in managing environmental risks and promoting sustainable practices.

During the audit, our experienced professionals examine various aspects of the EMS, collecting all the evidence on the current compliance level of the organization against the ISO 14001 standard. This includes environmental policies, procedures, documentation, implementation processes, and performance metrics. Our goal is to identify any gaps or areas for improvement that could hinder the effectiveness of your EMS and its ability to achieve environmental objectives. We provide a comprehensive audit report that includes corrective actions, audit results, recommendations, and photographic evidence.
