Revised ISO 14001 for Environmental Management Systems

One of the most prominent ISO standards, ISO 14001 Environmental management, has been revised and has been designed to respond to latest trends and ensure it is compatible with other management system standards.
There have been some changes made to ISO 14001, which include:
  • Increased prominence of environmental management within the organization’s strategic planning processes
  • Greater focus on leadership
  • Addition of proactive initiatives to protect the environment from harm and degradation, such as sustainable resource use and climate change mitigation
Some of the frequently asked questions around ISO standard revisions asks how this will affect you and your organisation, and whether you have to get re-certified for the revised standard; the answers to which can be found here.
The INX Environmental Data and Reporting Management solution captures an extensive range of environmental monitoring programs across air, water, soil, climate, waste, emissions, flora and fauna, vibration and more, providing the tools to support ISO 14001 and ISO 26000 certification and attainment. Environmental data is automatically uploaded from your laboratories with the results validated against set thresholds to ensure that any exceedances are highlighted and relevant people are automatically notified. Data can also be manually entered or uploaded from a spreadsheet. Key features include the management of tasks and schedules, the setting of thresholds and tolerances through simple value settings to generate exceedance alerts, automatically maintained audit trails, advanced security measures and reporting and graphing tools.
Unlike other environmental management systems, the INX Environmental Management solution allows you to manage your stakeholder and obligation information and commitments in the same database through the INX Compliance and Obligations and INX Stakeholder Management solutions and provides you with the tools to register and maintain communications; identify and manage issues’ and assign and track tasks in a simplistic and configurable manner.

INX Software’s powerful drill-down, interactive INX +BI reporting dashboards ensure that management has complete visibility over operations and costs to maximise control and effectiveness and minimise risk.
