Introduction to ISO 14000


Online Course / 1 hour



The need for a good environmental standard was felt due to the rapid growth of environmental pollution. The ISO 14000 series was started in 1992 to develop an international standard of safe environmental practices – it was a result of Uruguay round of the GATT negotiations and the Rio Summit on the Environment. The primary purpose of ISO 14000 series is to prevent pollution, protect the environment and improve the environmental performance of all kinds of organizations. This course has been designed to provide basic knowledge about the environment, environment management systems (EMS), ISO 14000, the relation between ISO 9000 and 14000, the integration of ISO 14001 and 9001, and the requirements of ISO 14001.
