Once an organisation has implemented an ISO 14001 Environmental Management System it is required to conduct internal audits at planned intervals to establish whether it conforms to ISO 14001 and its own system requirements, and to establish whether it is effectively maintained.

This 2 day IEMA ISO 14001 Internal Auditor training course will teach you how to conduct ISO 14001 internal audits for conformity, improvement and for system effectiveness.
