About this book

This text is aimed at managers and specialists, in all types and sizes of industrial, commercial and other organizations, who are involved in the development and implementation of an Environmental Management System (EMS). It covers the requirements of BS7750, the EU EMA scheme and the emerging international standard ISO 14001. The book is designed to ensure that maximum benefit is obtained from the EMS concept through a clear explanation of EMS principles. These are introduced by reference to the more familiar principles of quality management and then illustrated by practical examples of their application. Guidance on EMS implementations is provided, covering such topics as carrying out a preparatory review, assessing costs versus benefits, evaluating environmental effects and reviewing the system's continuing suitability and effectiveness.
