I've heard that Japnaene companies need their suoolier to compliance with ISO14000. The business with no registered supplier will be terminated someday in Y2000, especially SONY Group.
I'm not so wondered that EU country requires ISO14000, we'd better awared of BS8800.

No doubt that the ISO14001 train is rolling and you'd better hop on the train or get off the tracks (wow, where did that come from?)! By the way, Dewie, what is BS8800?

Dewie has finally put the last peice of the puzzle together. BS8800 is of course the safety standard in Britain, which was used, amongst numerous other standards, to create OHSAS 18000.
Please let me point out something soooo obvious that you've all missed it. 9K + 14K + 18K = 41K, and as we all know 41 is the answer to life, the universe and everything.
What's that I here you say, it's 42, not according to the ISO 41K Standard!

I had read somewhere that Chrysler was also requiring ISO 14000 registration. I will have to check my sources.

Ford and GM have set dates for compliance for teir 1& 2 suppliers....think its 2001, 2002...or maybe 2002, 2003....I have forgotten.....but the suppliers seem to be ignoring it, hoping it will go away (at least in my area)...Its alive and "out there" no question it will happen, registrars are talking it up...but there is so little real experience in this country....that companies seem to have their heads in the sand..so much controversy and resistance......

People seem to forget it is the one standard that actually pays for itself. Problem is, consultants tend to not know how to do it. Implementing 14k is backward to 9k, to do it properly.....Identification/recognition/measures of the current status are key...and so often overlooked. Having seen the UK approach, and comparing it to the US was an eye-opener for me...they are light years ahead of us.

Is this written anywhere or hearsay?

Whoa, Barb, did you mean Tier 2 as well as Tier 1? I'm with Marc, here. Is it written anywhere, especially about the Tier 2 (that's me!)about compliance? I think someone here may have posted or, at least, told us where the compliance letter (for Ford and GM) was available.

A conversation with my registrar 'subject matter expert' at a dinner meeting was my source. He tells me it has been mandated....although I did not see the letter myself. The discussion was about consultancy projects and he was to provide a colleague of mine with the details/documents .......(as he is doing 14k projects) and he (my colleague) could use these to pitch sales....the 'expert' was surprised the consultant was not totally ovrwhelmed with work by now.

So there you have it..... psuedo hearsay. I totally trust the guy, and take what he says as true.....he hasn't steered me wrong yet. AND he is 'IN' at Ford. My colleague is at Ford this week ...... and when he gets back I will check that out in more detail.....
