:rolleyes:Dear Friends,

I need your help....

Our organisation is ISO 14001 registered. We got certification in 2008 and seen one surveillance audit.

We have EMS surveillance audit ahead..... I need your help to explain how to include the following cases in to our existing ISO 14001 documents.

Case 1:
During the year 2009 after the EMS surveillance audit, we offered permission to a party for "Contract Manufacturing".

The contract manufacturer's product is different from our's.

The contract manufacturer have completed their manufacturing facility installations, procured raw materials and imported finished products that they manufactured in their own country and stored at our site. But so far they have not started their manufacturing process.

Case 2:
Our company has started expanding its product spectrum to includue manufacturing of new product the company has partially completed its installations during the last EMS surveillance audit. The installation for the new product manufacturing came to complition 2 months before and a first trial batch was manufactured 2 months before.


Now pls. explain me how to review my existing ISO 14001 document inview of the above explained two cases.

Regards,

S.Sundaramurthi

You need to respond favourably to the changes made or introduced into the existing system. You may need to :

1. Review your existing environmental policy to see if it's still relevant & appropriate to your business. If not, revise it accordingly.

2. Evaluate the significance of the environmental aspects associated with the new processes and products and state how the impacts will be mitigated or controlled.

3. Also review the significance level of existing aspects lest it should escalate with the introduction of new processes/ products.

4. Evaluate if the employees are competent enough to manage the environmental impacts of the 'changes' introduced into the system. If not, get them trained to enhance their competence.

5. Check the applicability of any additional legal / other requirements to and how they are linked to your significant aspects.

In short, you need to review the entire EMS and compare the outcome against the requirements. If gaps are observed, they must be fixed.
