IntroductionThis Environmental Management System Assessment Checklist is a tool for understandingrequirements of ISO14001:2015 “Environmental management systems – Requirementswith guidance for use”. The Checklist covers Clauses 4-10 requirements with probingquestions about how an organization has addressed requirements and what objectiveevidence is available in support of implementation. The resulting information may behelpful to identify areas where requirements are being met or where there may be gaps inunderstanding or the availability of objective evidence. Be aware that the Checklist couldbe a good starting point for understanding the status of implementation but is notintended to be fully comprehensive in its scope but rather to provide guidance and thoughtprovoking questions.The framework used in the development of the ISO14001:2015 Standard was based onAnnex SL of ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1, which defines the basic procedures (including clausenumbering) to be used in the design of new ISO Standards and also when ISO Standards arerevised. As a result you will see this framework here in ISO14001:2015 as well othermanagement system standards as they uniformly adopt this new high-level structure (HLS).Clauses 4-10 of the ISO14001:2015 Standard contain the requirements that organizationsmust meet prior to registration. The additional clauses in the Standard and the informativeAnnexes provide explanations, understanding and guidance when implementing theserequirements. ISO14001:2015 also has an updated list of terms and definitions which arehelpful in understanding requirements and expectations.On the following pages,requirements.RP-2 ISO 14001:2015DQS Inc.indicates new/significantly changedIssued: 8/15/15Revised: 5/12/17
