This standard is based on the requirements set out in the International standard ISO 14001 – Environmental management systems. ISO 14001 specifies the key requirements of an environmental management system and some of these requirements are contained in this standard. It should be noted that it is not the intention of this standard to require HSC organisations to achieve independent accreditation to ISO 14001, although this is an option individual organisations may wish to work towards. This standard only specifies the minimum requirements for controlling environmental risk, which include: - Establishing accountability arrangements - Environmental policy and strategy - Preparatory environmental review - Register of significant environmental risks - Environmental programmes - Environmental risk management process - Environmental capability - Monitoring and review - Audit
