What is ISO 14015?
ISO 14015 provides a systematic process on how to conduct an Environmental Assessment of Sites and Organizations. Purchasing and selling business units gives rise to many questions regarding compliance with environmental regulations. This standard, therefore, presents guidelines on properly determining the risk of acquiring property that holds a strategic benefit for the company, while avoiding any adverse cost and legal liability. The guidelines can be used by organizations of all sizes, operating anywhere in the world.
The Environmental Assessment of Sites and Organizations will enable the evaluation of environmental issues associated with an organization’s sites and other activities. This standard can be used for self-assessments, as well as for external assessments, with or without the need to employ third parties. In addition, this assessment can be conducted during operations or at the time of asset acquisition.
