ISO 14001:2015 Essentials Overview Webinar

23 November 2015
Environmental Assessor at NQA, gives an overview of the changes to ISO 14001:2015.

In this webinar Richard Walsh, Environmental Management Systems Assessor at NQA, gives an overview of the changes to ISO 14001:2015. 

Richard explains:

  • New concepts and terminology
  • Specific new clauses and requirements
  • Practical implications for maintaining certification
  • Transition timelines and notable dates.

To get the most value from this webinar, we recommend that you watch the Transition Essentials Webinar which introduces the new ISO 14001 structure contained in Annex SL.

Although this webinar was completed whilst the standard was at FDIS stage, NQA have evaluated the changes between the FDIS and the publication of the standard to be deemed as minor and therefore do not affect the technical aspects of this webinar.
