RE: who is registered to the ISO 14001 standard?



Lynn et alii - Some of us staties would post such a list, if we could get reliable information on who was registered in our little jurisdictions.  Some companies tell us, looking for recognition, the presence of a senior offical at the registation ceremony, or whatever, but more just keep it to themselves.  I try to keep track for NH, and it's difficult, even for such a small state.

Peer Center is good.

The Peer Center ( www.peercenter.net <http://www.peercenter.net> ) has good
information on EMSs for municipalities.

Having just received registration to ISO 14001, I, too, am having a hard
time finding where to add my employer to such a list.  It occurred to me
that this might be something the state environmental agencies might post on
their web sites?

The database at Worldpreferred.com (
http://www.worldpreferred.com/pub/search/advsearch.asp
<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
<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.

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
<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
