Many organisations have undertaken environmental “reviews” or “audits” to assess their environmental performance. On their own, however, these “reviews” and “audits” may not be sufficient to provide an organisation with the assurance that its performances not only meets, but will continue to meet, its legal and policy requirements. To be effective, they need to be conducted within a structured management system that is integrated within the organisation.
International Standards covering environmental management are intended to provide organisations with the elements of an effective environmental management system (EMS) that can be integrated with other management requirements and help organisations achieve environmental and economic goals. These standards, like other International Standards, are not intended to be used to create non-tariff barriers or to increase or change an organisation’s legal obligations.
