PRINCIPLES OF CERTIFICATION ACCORDING TO ISO 14001

The internationally recognized standard ISO 14001 comprises the core elements of an effective environmental management system which can be used for services, as well as doe the production (manufacturing) sector. The standard describes the requirements for a corporate governance system which allows for reducing the environmental impacts related to the operation of organizations. The standard requires that a company defines environmental goals and creates a management system necessary for their achievement. The certificate guarantees that an environmental management system is implemented, documented, used and maintained in accordance with the requirements of the ISO 14001 standard. As a result of the fact that the certificate is issued by an accredited third party – a certification authority – the entity actively minimizes the environmental impacts of its activities, products and services.

BENEFITS OF CERTIFICATION

  • achieving the intended deliverables of environmental management

CERTIFICATION PROCESS

The basic phases of the certification procedure are as follows:

  • implementing the EMS into practice
  • preparing the documentation
  • certification by an accredited certification authority
    • assessing and registering the client’s request for certification
    • entering into a contract on the performance of a certification audit (certification audit takes place in two stages)
    • setting up a team of auditors
    • preparing a plan of the audit
    • checking the facts in stages:
      a) reviewing the client’s documentation
      b) checking the facts on site
    • drawing up a report on the result of the certification audit

In case of significant deviations from the requirements of the standards, it is possible – as a last resort – to revoke the certificate
  • recertification audit
    • To ensure continuous validity of certification, a recertification audit should take place based on the certificate holder’s decision in the third year before expiration of the certificate’s validity.
