ISO 14001 - 6.1.3 Compliance Obligations

#1
Your help please - if you as an organisation use 3rd Party to compile and keep you updated of legislative changes; whereby you complete a questionnaire for the provider to identify the applicable legislation. Would it be possible to have a NC raised if there is a total disassociation between the identified aspects and the gamut of legislation identified by the questionnaire and 3rd party - "the organisation has not identified the applicable legislation based on "their" aspects and impacts"

In my mind I'm trying to address the possible imbalance between a Legislative Register being created by a professional 3rd Party and the somewhat lacklustre identification of significant aspects based on a product or service lifecycle.

Glenn,

Until you’ve determined your organization’s environment aspects and their significance you have a nonconformity with ISO 14001.

Doing this well is absolutely essential to the integrity of your organization’s environmental management.

Discrepancies between your significant aspects and the applicable regs is relatively minor.

Cover both nonconformities with your own CARs while building a solid foundation for your EMS.

Good luck,

John
