» Back to listing Revised ISO 14001 to become DIS

11th February 2014

ISO member countries have followed the UK in voting to move the latest version of the revised 14001 text on to a draft international standard (DIS).

A second committee draft (CD2) of the revised environmental management systems standard was published in October 2013 and ISO countries had until 23 January to vote on whether CD2 should become a DIS.

ISO has now confirmed that the national groups have voted in favour of taking CD2 to the next stage.

Key changes in the revised draft standard include:

  • Understanding the organisation’s strategic context and engagement with interested parties
  • Greater focus on environmental performance improvement across the value chain
  • Evaluating organisational risks and opportunities in the context of external environmental conditions (e.g. adapting to climate change, resource availability)
  • Strengthening requirements on the involvement of top management and integration of environmental management into core business processes and alignment with business strategy
  • Greater clarity on external communication, including emphasis on data quality and assurance.

For further information on the impact of the proposed changes or EMS implementation/ support please contact Dan Wellington
