A brief description of the ISO 14001 Certification in Kenya

Established in 1996 by the International Organization for Standardization, ISO 14001 Certification in Kenya standards are part of a group of norms (ISO 14000) created to encourage and support an approach to environmental management. It’s appropriate for all kinds of organizations (company and NGOs, unions, and so on) looking to improve its process of production operations, management, and production to reduce the environmental impact of its operations. The guidelines in this norm (that were revised in 2015) can be reviewed and verified by an approved agency, which we’ll detail below.

The fundamentals of ISO 14001 Certification in Kenya

The use of ISO 14001 Certification in Kenya is not a legal requirement and, like other standards established by ISO adopting it is voluntary. Although it’s not mandatory, it requires compliance with the environmental regulations in place and the future development of it for those who adhere to the guidelines. The fundamental principle behind ISO norms is to search to improve continuously, over repeated cycles, as per the four-step procedure that is the Deming (PDCA) cycle:

  • SS Plan
  • SS Do
  • SS Study/Check
  • SS Act

Its ISO 14001 structure is split into ten parts. The three first sections are introductions sections, while the remaining seven cover the requirements of the system for environmental monitoring. The seven major sections of the document are about:

1. Context of the company – The following section discusses the requirements to understand your company to set up an EMS.

3. Planning – Top management should also plan for the continual purpose of the EMS. The risks and opportunities associated with the EMS within the organization have to be assessed, as well as environmental goals to be improved must be identified and strategies developed to achieve these goals. In addition, the company must evaluate how its organizational processes impact the environment, as well as all legal obligations that must be met by the company.

4. Help – The support section is concerned with the managing of all resources in the EMS as well as the requirements for the ability, awareness, competence, and controlling the documentation (the documents and documents required to support your processes).
