IEMA webinar on 12 March to give members an insight into progress on the current revision of ISO 14001.

IEMA’s executive director of policy Martin Baxter is to present a webinar for members on the latest developments in the revision of the international environment management systems standard ISO 14001.

As the UK representative on the ISO working group redrafting the standard, Baxter took part in the latest round of discussions on the revision in February at Gothenburg, Sweden.

With 14001 being used by more than 267,000 organisations worldwide, changes to the standard will make a significant difference to the way businesses manage and improve their environmental performance.

The webinar, on 5 March, will provide the first opportunity for users of the standard to hear about the proposed revisions and IEMA members will benefit from:

  • an overview of the revision process;
  • an outline of the standard’s new “high-level” structure;
  • a detailed account of the proposed changes to the standard;
  • an understanding of implications for organisations using the standard; and
  • a look at the proposed timescale for implementing the new version.

At the end of the webinar, participants will be directed to a restricted members-only area of iema.net where they will be able to download a copy of the revised draft.

To book your place on the webinar, and for more information, visit iema.net, where details of a UK-wide series of free follow-on workshops will also soon be posted.

These workshops will allow members to discuss the draft standard in detail and provide a basis for IEMA’s response in the next stage of the revision process.
