Update your environmental auditor qualification
It is still possible to update your current environmental auditing qualification in accordance with the Standard's training requirements by attending SQMC's single day ISO 14001:2015 Transition workshop. As most auditors are now up-to-date, SQMC will withdraw this module in 2019. Thereafter, those who haven't updated through the module can enrol to re-attend the full, two day, ISO 14001 Internal Auditor course. Please note that Auditor certificates quoting the '2004' issue of the Standard are no longer acceptable during certification audits (as of the global deadline of September 2018).
Is it mandatory to update?
The Standard requires it for those already trained to the 2004 version, which became obsolete in September 2018.
If you are an Internal Auditor or Supplier Auditor, you should update your qualification in order to continue auditing Environmental Management Systems -- all of which should now be transitioned from the previous (2004) version to the new (2015) Standard.
I'm not an auditor. Should I attend?
This Transition workshop will be beneficial for anyone responsible for the implementation or maintenance of an ISO 14001-based Environmental Management System. Managers affected by an EMS should also consider attending the course, to gain a clear understanding of how the changes will impact their role.
Freelance consultants and trainers will also want to attend, in order to meet certain CPD demands for their profession.
Annex SL is the new framework on which all business management systems are being built upon. We cover this adequately from an auditor's perspective on this single day module; however, those seeking an in-depth understanding of Annex SL will require to attend a 2 day programme from an alternative training provider.
If you have any questions, please contact our Technical Department for further advice.
