Primer for industry concerned with environment. S. Sleeman. Pipeline Gas J., May 1996, 79(5), 25--27.
The new ISO 14000 series standards are reviewed and any company trading with the European Union must be certified as meeting this requirement for environmental management systems. Features of basic commitment, management audits, and certification requirements for ISO 14000 are discussed. The overall objective is to provide a uniform worldwide system for developing environmental management systems. Costly new performance requirements are not involved. The main goals of ISO 14000 are to encourage regulatory compliance, provide continual improvement in environmental performance, and to prevent pollution.
