ISO 14000 Info

How Much ISO 14001 Documentation Do You Need?

The 14000 Store has designed clearly written procedures to describe each section of the standard. That is why our EMS is better than the rest – we cover the entirestandard. Don’t be fooled by others who only provide a few procedures and call it an EMS, leaving you to create many of them on your own. Is it worth the savings?

Do I need Procedures and Flow Diagrams?

No. Written procedures are more informative and much easier to edit than flowcharts. As a general rule, editing flow charts can be tedious – you’re often better off creating them yourself.

You are required to have a diagram of your overall processes, and we recommend using the cloud service like Lucidchart to create them. You can sign up free trial account of Lucidchart and try it for yourself.

How do I set up my Documentation?

If you look at this pyramid, the lower the items are – the more specific they are to your business. The higher levels (QM, Proc) are dictated by the standard and are thus fairly common from one ISO 14001 company to the next.
