LRQA ISO Standards Update: ISO Technical Committee holds Google Hangout about ISO 14001 revision

Experts from the ISO Technical Committee responsible for the revisions to ISO 14001 recently held a free video call using Google Hangouts to share with users what is new and what progress has been made so far. The speakers included Dr Anne-Marie Warris, who currently chairs the ISO subcommittee ISO/TC 207 /SC 1, and other experts from the USA, Malaysia, Colombia, and Japan.

Starting with background information about ISO 14001 and why it is changing, the experts go on to describe how the results of the user survey were included in the revisions process. The Google Hangout also covers the main changes and what they consider to be the most important change – including top management involvement and life cycle thinking, and explained the timescales, implications, and how to get involved.
