How to get ISO 14001:2004 for free!

A little known fact is that the requirement clauses of ISO 14001:2004 are available for free within a European Union Regulation.

European Regulation (EC) No 1221/2009 establishes the European Union’s eco-management and audit scheme (EMAS), which is based on the requirements of ISO 14001:2004 as well as other specific requirements.

Annex II of theĀ Regulation gives all the clause requirements of ISO 14001:2004 but does not include the informative Annexes of the International Standard as theseĀ are not specifically required for implementation of an environmental management system.
