ISO 14001

Clients with ISO 14001 (Environmental Management)

We fully understand the requirements of ISO 14001 as we coach organisations to achieve the standard through our sister company known as E Advantage

An aspect of the ISO requirement is that companies retain a legal register which is a list of all environmental legislation that impacts on the running of their organisation, waste disposal, for example.

Part 5 of the Energy Performance of Buildings (Certificates and Inspections) Regulations 2007, which implements Article 9 of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive, requires an air conditioning assessment to be undertaken and that has to be included on the legal register. It is easy to see therefore, that ISO assessors will ask to see the air conditioning energy assessment report and certificate.

Very often, we receive last minute calls from ISO 14001 companies (or those about to seek accreditation) asking for our assistance as the ISO assessors are due on site. In most cases, we can drop everything to attend and undertake an assessment but in others have supplied a letter of comfort to state that the assessment will shortly be undertaken. We will also speak with the ISO assessors to confirm our experience of this situation and that our assessment will shortly take place. This can often avoid a 'non-conformity' being issued by the ISO assessors.

If you are an accredited ISO 14001 company, or seeking to become one then ring us as early as you can to discuss this and we will do everything we can to provide support.
