RE: who is registered to the ISO 14001 standard?



The database at Worldpreferred.com ( http://www.worldpreferred.com/pub/search/advsearch.asp ) seems more complete than the one Janet referenced, and Wolrdpreferred is still incomplete. 
 
Apparently, the only real way to tell how many US companies are ISO 14001 is to visit the websites of all US registrars.  A list of RAB-accredited registrars is available at http://www.rabnet.com/er_main.shtml   I actually tried this a couple of months ago.  My understanding is that RAB requires accredited registrar firms to post who've they've registered, but nevertheless I was not sucessful in finding such a list for all registrars who had websites.
 
It's frustrating.  I've heard that the Registrar Accreditation Board is trying to get a better directory together, but as things are, there is no simply reliable way to find out who's registered to ISO 14001 in the US.
 
The question of 'how many firms have an EMS' may be too broad to answer.  All firms supplying the big automobile manufacturers probably have one, because the customer has mandated it.  Other industries have mandated EMSs for their suppliers too. 
 
On the other hand, probably very very few small businesses have one.  Small businesses, of course, represent the vast majority of businesses.

Does anyone have any type of rough statistical information on what percentage

Was also wondering if there are numbers (% or otherwise) on how many
companies in the US are ISO 14000(1) certified?

Heather,

Take a look at EPA's Design for the Environment  Integrated
Environmental Management Systems  web page at :

http://www.epa.gov/dfe/projects/iems/index.htm

The EMS is based on ISO 14001 principles and integrates P2 principles
hence IEMS.  There is a lot of information there including a manual and
small  business templates that allow SMEs to "build their own"  IEMS.

Hope this helps,

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if anyone has ezperience with  Environmental Policy
development for a government department,  and if you have a sense as to
whether an EMS or P2 plan is a  better way to go?

Thanks,

Heather Paquet
