ISO/DIS 14001:2015, Clause 10

10. Improvement
10.1 Nonconformity and Corrective Action

The common Annex SL text for this clause has been expanded by ISO/DIS 14001:2015 to react to a nonconformity with “immediate” action to control and correct it, as well as, to mitigate adverse environmental impacts. It also adds that corrective actions must be appropriate to the “significance” of the effects of the nonconformity, including the environmental impact.

10.2 Continual Improvement
ISO/DIS 14001:2015 clarifies that the reason for continually improving the environmental management system is to enhance environmental performance.
