RE: EMS vs. P2 Plan for Government Department



For every facility registered to 14001 there are 2x, 3x, 20x (?) that
number who have an EMS but see no compelling business or other reason to
go through registration.

The most recent ISO compilation shows 2,620 U.S. registrations as of
Dec. 2002, a 59% increase from the 1,645 registered as of Dec. 2001. 
See http://www.iso.ch/iso/en/iso9000-14000/iso14000/iso14000index.html

Deborah:

          The Environmental Management Report (July 2003), QSU
Publishing
Co. (886-225-3122), reports 2,837 ISO 14001 U. S. "certificates"; 1,038
of
these in four states - MI, OH, IN, IL.  The U. S. Census of
Manufacturing
(probably on-line) would provide the total number of manufacturing
establishments.  The percent calculation won't be exact however,
because
the certification bodies don't distinguish between multiple and
single-site
registrations.
