In September 2015, the revised ISO standard for Environmental Management Systems (EMS) was released, designated ISO-14001:2015. The new ISO 14001:2015 is similar in many respects to the prior ISO 14001 standard, however it does make numerous changes which will require operations that currently meet the ISO 14001:2004 to make important changes to how their programs are planned and implemented.. Organizations are granted a three-year transition period after the revision has been published to migrate their environmental management system to the new edition of the standard. After this transition period, companies that opt for third party certification will have to seek certification to the new version of the standard. The former version, ISO 14001:2004, and any certification to it, will be out of date.
