There has been substantial progress in the revision of the environmental management standard ISO 14001.
The second draft by the international expert committee was published on 23 October. It is now open for comment by ISO members and voting by national working groups until 21 January 2014.
The first committee draft was published in March and attracted well over 1,000 comments. These took longer than expected to work through so the timetable has slipped. Publication of the final standard, originally planned for January 2015, is now expected in May or June 2015.
