To echo Randy, There is no such thing as a master list of aspects. And hopefully there will never be one.
The standard instructs you, the organization, to identify your own aspects. Pay particular to the word "control."
Let us clarify this. There is no such thing as a master list of aspects defined in ISO 14001. However, each company would be expected to have such a relevant list for their specific company and/or facility location(s).

Re: ISO 14001 - Master list of Aspects and Impacts

Quint,

I agree with other posters here that there can't really be a master list of aspects. This will vary from industry to industry and specifically with what the business actually does.

But I found the following list extremely useful as a guidleline when going through all the businesses processes to identify the aspects prior to running a two dimensional risk analysis over them before putting them into an Environmental Effects Register for the management.

"Environmental effects to be addressed shall cover present and future, and actual and potential effects, and shall include, but not be limited to, the following issues:
Spills to land or water;
Accidental discharges to the environment;
Emissions to air and odours;
Environmental noise;
Heritage conservation;
Greenhouse effect;
Ozone-layer gases;
Ecosystem protection;
Contaminated land and remediation."

Clearly some may not apply to your business. Hope it's of some value to you.
Thank You to Marty50 for your informative Post and/or Attachment!

Re: ISO 14001 - Master list of Aspects and Impacts

Table A.1 - Examples of activities, products and services and their associated environmental aspects and impacts, Annex A of ISO 14004:2004 provide good reference on this subject.

Re: ISO 14001 - Master list of Aspects and Impacts

I agree with others - there is no such thing as a universal aspects list.

For manufacturing facilities most aspects fall into one of three categories:'

1 - Stuff that you use - electrificy, natural gas, water ...
2 - Stuff you don't want to happen - spills, unplanned releases ....
3 - The Wastes you produce as a result of day to day operations - waste water, air emissions, garbage, scrap, used oils, scrap cardboard ...

Category 1 can be prefaced by "use of"
Category 2 can be expressed as "potential spill of oil"
Category 3 usually has one of 20+ adjectives attached to it - used, dirty, soiled, contaminated, broken, damaged, empty, surplus, obsolete, radioactive, spent, waste, oily, scrap, depleted, old, worn, spoiled, superseded, stained
