Comply with legal and other requirements
The cornerstone of your EMS is identifying the environmental legislation that applies to your day-to-day activities, and making sure that you comply.

Your business may also be subject to other requirements. These may include:
  • codes of practice
  • trade association and industry initiatives
  • other relevant local, regional, national and international initiatives
  • site and corporate environmental policies
  • relevant parts of your quality and health and safety policies
  • For more information on how you identify what legislation is applicable, see the page on how to identify environmental aspects and legislation in our guide on how to plan and set up your environmental management system (EMS) you can contact us at info@iso-uae-dubai.com

    Meeting legal and other requirements

    Once you have identified the legislation and regulations you must comply with, you need to work through them one-by-one to see how well your business is performing.
    Even if you are complying with all the requirements, it can be a very useful exercise to examine all your business processes again to see if you can improve your performance. For example, you may be complying with relevant packaging regulations, but can you use a different type of packaging that performs the same function in a more environmentally-friendly way?

    Addressing non-compliance
    If you uncover areas where you are not complying with regulatory requirements or codes of practice, you must ensure that you address these immediately. You should develop a clearly defined action plan to help you achieve this.
    ISO 14001:2004 provides guidance on how to manage the environmental aspects of business activities more effectively, while taking into consideration environmental protection, pollution prevention and socio-economic needs.
    The ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management Systems certification enables to demonstrate commitment to the environment, as well as continuously improving corporate image and integrating the realities of a changing world.
    Organizations of all kinds are increasingly concerned with achieving and demonstrating sound environmental performance by controlling the impact of their activities, products, or services on the environment, taking into account their environmental policy and objectives. They do so in the context of increasingly stringent legislation, the development of economic policies and other measures to foster environmental protection, and a general growth of concern from interested parties about environmental matters including sustainable development.
