As an update to an earlier post (How to get ISO 14001:2004 for free!), there is a little known fact is that the requirement clauses of ISO 14001:2015 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 given in Annex II of the Regulation.
A recent revision, Regulation (EU) 2017/1505 published on 27 August 2017 provides amendments to the parent Regulation to ensure that EMAS can be based on ISO 14001:2015. These requirements are in Annex II of the amendment Regulation.
The publication of the amendment EU Regulation has the unintended consequence that the Clause requirements of ISO 14001:2015 are available as a free download from the European Commissions website.
It should be noted that the EU Regulation does not explicitly include the informative Annexes of the International Standard as these are not specifically required for implementation of an environmental management system based on EMAS.
So if you want to get a free download of the Clause requirements of ISO 14001:2015 for free, head to the European Commission website for your free copy here
