ISO 14001:2015 to ISO 14001:2015 EMS Transition Training Course

  • Course Duration: 1 day


The much awaited ISO 14001:2015 was issued in September 2015. It has a new structure and several significant new requirements. Organisations will find some of the key changes challenging. However, if understood and implemented well, the new standard should prove highly beneficial to organisational performance and to business sustainability.

This course comprises a series of interactive tutorials and workshops which describes the changes specified in the ISO 14001:2015. It explains the reasons for them and considers their likely impact on EMS design, implementation, auditing and certification.

  • Environmental practitioners who will need to understand the new ISO 14001:2015 requirements.
