Environmental Management System
The ISO 14001 standard is the best known and widely used voluntary environmental management framework. Its requirements are applicable to any type of organization, large or small, and for each business sector. This standard is based on the concept of continuous improvement and regulatory compliance.
When implementing the ISO 14001 standard, it is necessary to identify all environmental impacts and related aspects and to introduce the best practices for managing these impacts.
If you are interested in certification according to ISO 9001, please contact us and fill out a certification request.
A certification audit is carried out in two stages and, upon successful completion, a certificate of compliance with a validity period of 3 years is issued. Supervisory audits are conducted in the second and third years.
Without developed and implemented environmental management system (EMS) in accordance with the requirements of ISO 14001, the certification process could not be started.
