Iso 14001 standard

ISO 14001[/url] is in fact a series of international standards on environmental management. It provides a framework for the development of an [url=htttp://]environmental management system

and the supporting audit programme.

The ISO 14001 series emerged primarily as a result of the Uruguay round of the GATT negotiations and the Rio Summit on the Environment held in 1992. While GATT concentrates on the need to reduce non-tariff barriers to trade, the Rio Summit generated a commitment to protection of the environment across the world.

After the rapid acceptance of ISO 9000, and the increase of environmental standards around the world, the International Standards Organisation (ISO) assessed the need for international environmental management standards

. They formed the Strategic Advisory Group on the Environment (SAGE) in 1991, to consider whether such standards could serve to:

Promote a common approach to environmental management similar to quality management;
Enhance organizations’ ability to attain and measure improvements in environmental performance; and
Facilitate trade and remove trade barriers.
In 1992, SAGE’s recommendations created a new committee, TC 207, for international environmental management standards. This committee and its sub-committees included representatives from industry, standards organizations, government and environmental organizations from many countries. What developed was a series of ISO14000 standards

designed to cover:

-environmental management systems
-environmental auditing
-environmental performance evaluation
-environmental labelling
-life-cycle assessment
-environmental aspects in product standards

ISO 14001 was first published as a standard in 1996 and it specifies the actual requirements for an environmental management system
. It applies to those environmental aspects over which an organization has control and where it can be expected to have an influence.

ISO 14001 is often seen as the corner-stone standard of the ISO 14000 series. It specifies a framework of control for an Environmental Management System[/url] and is the only [url=]ISO 14000 standard
against which it is currently possible to be certified by an external certification body. However, it does not in itself state specific environmental performance criteria.

I think so that

have provide the best software and template.

ISO defines the quality management system. ITIL implementation would help you to satisfy your customer and ISO is the verification or sort of approval that your organization is following the right manners.

ITIL certificates is personal certification where as an organization would seek for an ISO certification.

Does this have any training like the ISO 14000 Training
