ISO 14000 Info
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.
