As you may already know, the ISO 14001 environmental management systems (EMS) standard is currently being revised, considering future challenges for EMS and continual improvementThe International Organization for Standardization (ISO) recently launched an ISO 14001 continual improvement survey to develop an understanding of the needs of current, past and potential users and other knowledgeable interested parties in relation to EMS standards.  The survey takes into account key topics from the ongoing discussions in the working group that is revising ISO 14001, and the results will be used to inform the ongoing revision.

Your views on these key topics and opportunities for improvement are extremely important, in order that the results truly represent the thinking of the users of the standard and other knowledgeable interested parties, including those in the US.  Please follow the link below to participate in the survey.
