INFORMATION ON EACH STANDARD
The options on the left hand side of this page provide links to pages explaining each of the standards that comprise the ISO 14000 Series


OBTAINING THE STANDARDS
The first step is usually to obtain a copy of the standards themselves. These can be procured either stand alone, or as part of a kit.

For packaged options one of the most popular sources is The ISO 14001 Guide. Individual standards can be obtained at the ISO Standards Shop


COMPLYING WITH THE STANDARDS
ISO 14001 is the only standard intended for registration by a third party (along the lines of ISO 9001 or QS 9000). All the others are for guidance.

Whether seeking formal certification or not, the start point is often difficult: What is required? Where can I get ISO 14001 Policies? Where do I learn about ISO 14000? What about procedures?. The list of questions is long.

Fortunately, there are resources available to help. The one recommended by this portal is The ISO 14000 Toolkit. This offers outstanding value, and includes a number of substantial and quality components: an ISO 14001 policy manual, a set of procedures, a comprehensive ISO 14000 training presentation, an audit checklist, a significant number of data collection forms, etc

It is documented on its own website: The ISO 14000 Toolkit
