A do-it-yourself manual, with steps to success and simple explanatory notes, designed for real companies. ISO 14001 Environmental Certification Step by Step has been written with smaller companies especially in mind.

Dr. A.J. Edwards explains how to achieve the ISO 14001 standard aided by a complementary website which contains a sample manual and detailed sample registers and procedures. These will provide a quick and straightforward guide to achieving the requirements of ISO 14001 Environmental Certification.

Many organisations working towards ISO 14001 already possess ISO 9000 registration, or choose to achieve ISO 14001 and ISO 9000 simultaneously as an integrated system. Therefore, to prevent duplication, ISO 14001 Environmental Certification Step by Step includes cross-referencing of ISO 14001 requirements to the relevant procedures in the Quality System.

Key Features

Includes sample registers, sample procedures and a sample manual - on the web, in "fill in the blanks" format, and also within the text.

Offers an outline of the standard, the need for procedures and explains similarities to ISO 9000.


Environmental, Health and Safety and Quality Managers.

Students on Environmental Engineering courses.
