With almost two-thirds of members telling IEMA that environment management systems (EMS) are a part of their role, the Institute has worked to ensure that everyone have access to the right consultations, updates and training on the revisions to ISO 14001.

The updated 14001, the world’s leading EMS standard, is due to be implemented in 2015 after a thorough consultation and review, to which many IEMA members made significant contributions. To support those with EMS responsibilities through the implementation next year, IEMA will launch a tailored training course later in 2014.

“Making the transition to ISO 14001:2015” has been designed to give learners an understanding of the revised standard, enabling them to evaluate and implement changes with the aim of improving their organisation’s EMS and environmental performance.

Learners will also benefit from being issued with a “gap analysis” tool to assist in the planning, management and transition to 14001:2015.

Full details of the course, including learning outcomes, providers and costs, will be made available over the next few months, both online at and in future issues of the environmentalist. IEMA executive director Martin Baxter, a member of the working group responsible for updating 14001, is due to outline the main changes at the EMS forum on 26 November.
