ISO 14001
What is ISO 14001?
Every responsible business leader has concerns about how their company’s activities are impacting on the environment. Water use, energy use, pollution and waste are some factors that may negatively affect your local, national and international environment. These factors may also reduce your profitability and reputation if not managed effectively.

ISO 14001 is a framework to help your organisation address these issues. It prescribes controls that should be in place for you to have an Environmental Management System that is right for you and your context.

Centre for Assessment provides certification to ISO 14001 via a comprehensive audit of your Environmental Management System. We will help ensure that the environmental issues that affect your business are managed responsibly.

How Much Does it Cost?
Centre for Assessment prides itself not only on the quality of its audits but also its highly competitive fees, with initial audits starting from as little as £900.
Our fees are calculated based on a number of factors, including how many people work for your organisation and the number of sites from which you operate. ISO 14001 certification is based on a three-year cycle and we will quote for the whole cycle. However, your certification audits are only contracted once dates are agreed with your auditor and we will only invoice you after the audit has taken place. There are no hidden charges or management fees from Centre for Assessment. A member of our friendly Business Development team will be happy to talk you through the likely costs for your organisation or, if you prefer, you can complete an application form to receive a detailed, no-obligation audit and certification proposal. Just fill in a form on our website or give us a call.
