Environmental management system(EMS) certification is a procedure for confirmation of a degree of Organization’s environmental management system conformity to requirements of ISO 14001 standard.
EMS certification is performed by independent competent auditors and experts of ACS, who have necessary experience and training in the scope of conducting audits for compliance with the requirements of audited standards, as well as competence in the field of activity of an organization being audited
After implementation of ISO 9000 series standards which describe the quality management system model, it became clear, that, PDCA Cycle (Plan-Do-Check-Act) may be applied to environmental management systems as well. Since the 1970s, more and more attention all over the world appears to be given to significance of society’s impact on environment. In 1992, British Standards Institution introduced the national environmental management standard BS 7750, as a basis for development of an international standard. The first version of the international standard ISO 14001 was published in 1996. In 2004, the new version of ISO 14001 standard was published. ISO 14001 does not provide specific technological approaches and methods for environmental impact management, does not suggest particular environmental indicators, it determines general requirements for environment management systems.
The purpose of ISO 14001 is to ensure basis for complex strategic approach to the organization’s environment protection policy, organization’s plans and actions.
