14001:2004 - Environmental Management
Quality Control and Environment Protection Departments
ISO 14001:2004 standard addresses various aspects of environmental
management. It provides practical tools for companies and
organizations looking to identify and control their environmental
impact and constantly improve their environmental performance.
ISO 14001:2004 and ISO 14004:2004 focus on environmental
management systems. The other standards in the family focus
on specific environmental aspects such as life cycle analysis,
communication and auditing.
14001:2004 sets out the criteria for an environmental management
system and can be certified to. It does not state requirements
for environmental performance, but maps out a framework
that a company or organization can follow to set up an effective
environmental management system. It can be used by any organization
regardless of its activity or sector.
ISO 14001:2004 can provide assurance to company management
and employees as well as external stakeholders that environmental
impact is being measured and improved. Mr. Don Diamond is

for profit or not-for-profit, better manage its relationship
with the environment. If all the elements of ISO 14001 are
incorporated into the management process, the organization
may opt to prove that it has achieved full alignment or
conformity with the international standard, ISO 14001, by
using one of four recognized options. These are:
Make a self-determination and self-declaration, or
2. Seek confirmation of its conformance by parties having
an interest in the organization, such as customers, or
3. Seek confirmation of its self-declaration by a party
external to the organization, or
4. Seek certification/registration of its environmental
management system by an external organization.
does not control conformity assessment; its mandate is to
develop and maintain standards. ISO has a neutral policy
on conformity assessment. One option is not better than
the next. Each option serves different market needs. The
adopting organization decides which option is best for them,
in conjunction with their market needs.
