To ISO or not to ISO
Why standardisation matters
ISO 14001 Environmental Management System
ISO 14001:2015 outlines the requirements for an environmental management system that can be used by an organization to improve its environmental performance.
An organisation that wants to improve its environmental performance and manage its environmental responsibilities effectively, diligently and above all, legally should use ISO 14001:2015
ISO 14001:2015 assists organizations in achieving the desired outcomes of their environment management system. These are beneficial for the environment, employees, and other interested parties. The intended outcomes of an environment management system are consistent with the organization’s environmental policies.
* Enhancement of environmental performance
* Fulfillment of compliance obligations
* Achievement of environmental goals.
ISO 14001:2015 applies to all organizations, regardless of their size, type, or nature. It covers the environmental aspects of any activities, products, or services the organization can influence, control, or influence, from a life-cycle perspective. ISO 14001:2015 doesn’t specify any environmental performance criteria.
To improve the environmental management system, ISO 14001:2015 may be used in its entirety or in part. However, claims of conformity to ISO 14001 are not valid unless all requirements are included in the organization’s environmental management systems and are met without exception.

ISO 27001 Information Security Management
ISO 27001:2017 describes how to manage information security.
This international standard outlines how to manage information security. It was first published by the International Organization for Standardization and the International Electrotechnical Commission in 2005.
The standards were then updated in 2013. Organizations that comply with the requirements of the standard can apply to be certified by an accredited certification agency after completing an audit.
ISO 27001 is an industry-standard framework, providing requirements for an information security management system (ISMS). Organisations that implement these standards enable organizations of any kind to manage the security of assets such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details or information entrusted by third parties.
Utilizing a standards framework ensures that the same results are met when dealing with the disposal and security management of data. Something Fixed Asset Disposal holds highly as a basic requirement of operation.
How many of our competitors hold this accreditation? Would you trust a vendor that only holds a basic ICO document that costs next to nothing and is not checked upon like a yearly audit of an ISO 27001
