ISO/DIS 14001:2015

The current ISO 14001:2004 environmental management standard is being revised after more than a decade of use. The draft ISO 14001:2015 standard has adopted Annex SL of the ISO Directives and will have the same clause structure as the draft ISO 9001:2015 standard.

In addition to providing the clause framework for all management system standards, Annex SL also provides common definitions and, where applicable, common text for the requirements.

The ISO/DIS 14001:2015 additions to the common Annex SL text are described in the following articles in this special newsletter edition:

4. Context of the Organization
5. Leadership
6. Planning

8. Operation
