This half-day course is designed to provide an overview of the requirements of ISO 14001:2015.  It is structured to give managers an understanding of how to design and implement an EMS within their own organisation and the benefits of doing so. It will also emphasize the importance of leadership in EMS.

The course addresses the requirements of ISO 14001:2015 and will incorporate examples of documented information required for ISO 14001. A practical delivery methodology will be applied. Additionally the course will highlight the differences between the current standard and its 2004 predecessor.

The course will also be of interest to companies who do not necessarily wish to move towards formal certification of their EMS but who wish to reduce their impact on the environment and incorporate best environmental practices.
