Implementing ISO 14001 into an existing ISO/TS 16949 Quality Management System

Q

#1
I am an internal auditor in a company with an ISO/TS 16949 registration. We are charged with integrating ISO 14001 into our existing QMS. I am having difficulty "connecting the dots" to get this done. Is there some guidance out there from those who may have done something similar?:bonk:

There's a table (table A.2) that shows correspondence between the clauses of ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 at the back of the ISO 9001 standard and/or the ISO 14001 standard. Start from there.

Qual Latte,

Determine your organization's significant environmental aspects and your environmental objectives and targets.

If your QMS is process-based then it is a lot easier; if not you may need to start again from scratch.

Determine the processes and controls that are unique to your organization's prevention of pollution; being led by your significant aspects, objectives and targets.

Then:

1. Re-analyze the key processes affected by the newly determined processes and controls.

2. Add the additional controls to your existing processes (such as consider the environmental impact of design changes before implementing them).

3. Add the additional processes to your QMS (such as "deploying legal requirements to the management system").

Rename your QMS the <<Your Company Name>> Management System.

Train process teams in their updated and new processes.

Train your internal auditors to conduct audits using both standards.

Run an Awareness Leaders Workshop so top managers are explaining how their updated management system results in success for customers, neighbors and the globe.

Report on the performance of the updated management system so top management make any necessary changes; do this twice before certifying it to ISO 14001.

PM me with specific questions for more specific guidance.

John

Just to add a little to the very good advice given so far, wherever you get 'common clauses' e.g. document control, records, audits, etc, you will not have much to do. However, please don't assume that because the clause title is the same that the content of the clause is also the same. e.g. management review is required by both standards and whilst the intent is the same, the content is different, so you will need to amend your agenda if you want to combine them.

A point I would add to John's list of things to do is legislation. You need to establish what environmental legislation and 'other' requirements are applicable to your business, have access to the legislation, keep it up to date and verify compliance with it. This is one of the areas I sometimes see weaknesses in systems.
