This topic explains the process for evaluating environmental performance and corrective action and outlines review procedures to ensure the EMS is conforming to the requirements of an organisation’s environmental policy, including environmental performance improvements.

The ISO 14001 standard requires an organisation to establish procedures to periodically monitor and measure aspects of operations that interact with the environment and can cause significant impacts, evaluate compliance with legal and other requirements and to undertake corrective action where necessary, including changes to how the EMS functions where necessary.

Following the checking and corrective action procedures, the management review completes the plan, do, check, act (PDCA) self-assessment cycle.
