ISO 14000 A Guide to the New Environmental Management Standards

A Book By Tom Tibor with Ira Feldman


The ISO 14000 series of environmental management standards now under development by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) are certain to affect every aspect of a company's environmental operations. ISO 14000 has captured the attention of business and governments worldwide and, following in the footsteps of the ISO 9000 quality management standards, ISO 14000 registration may become a global passport to doing business for thousands of companies.

ISO 14000 A Guide to the New Environmental Management Standards is a comprehensive, preview of the ISO 14000 series for companies that want to know what ISO 14000 is, how it will affect them, and what they can do about it. The book explores the ISO 14000 series in detail. It traces the development of the standards and describes each standard under development including environmental management systems, environmental auditing, environmental labeling, environmental performance evaluation, and life cycle assessment. It also discusses some of the international and domestic implications of the standards, the probable registration process and other relevant environmental management standards and regulations, including the European Union's Eco-Management and Audit Regulation.
