Frequently Asked Questions: ISO 14001

What is ISO 14001?

ISO 14001 is a voluntary standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) outlining requirements for an effective environmental management system (EMS). The most current version of the standard is ISO 14001:2015.


The ISO describes use of the standard as a way “organizations can ensure they are taking proactive measures to minimize their environmental footprint, comply with relevant legal requirements, and achieve their environmental objectives.”

What are ISO 14001 requirements?

ISO 14001 requirements are best-practice processes an organization can use to identify its actual and potential environmental impact, and develop ways to minimize that impact. Mandatory requirements include:

  • Determine scope of the organization’s EMS
  • Establish, implement, maintain and continually improve the EMS
  • Develop an Environmental Policy
  • Assess and document risks and opportunities
  • Include compliance obligations in EMS
  • Create environmental objectives that are consistent with the environmental policy, measurable, monitored, communicated and updated as appropriate


For detailed information visit: ISO 14001:2015.

What is ISO 14001 certification?

Being certified to ISO 14001 means that a third-party auditor has evaluated an organization’s compliance efforts to determine that they have properly implemented the standard.

Who should get certified for ISO 14001?

Any type and size organization can benefit from ISO 14001 compliance, even without certification. However, following and certifying to the standard benefit businesses in many ways, including:

  • Compliance with statutes or other legal responsibilities
  • Managing risk
  • Expanding potential customer base
  • Improving brand and community reputations
  • Reducing costs and improving efficiency
How can a QMS help with ISO 14001 compliance?

Like quality management, environmental management is a business system that requires organized tasks, heavy documentation, regular updates and management involvement. QMS software helps attain ISO 14001 compliance with several applications, including:

  • Document Control
  • Risk Management
  • Management Review
  • Employee Training
  • Corrective Actions


QT9 QMS offers 23+ standard modules that help streamline and centralize ISO 14001 compliance, including all of the above. Plus we offer full customer support, an available ERP integration and Business Intelligence tool.
