During August, Bri-Stor Systems completed the transition from ISO14001:2004 to ISO 14001:2015 along with sister companies Alpha Manufacturing and Atlas Coating.

The ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System revision was released in September 2015, replacing the former ISO 14001:2004 revision. As an organisation this enhances our environmental performance.

All Businesses that are registered to the 2004 revision had until September 2018 to complete the transition to the revised standard, as the Bri-Stor Group endeavours to protect the Environment and Ecosystems through a proactive approach, we set out our objective to attain certification to the 2015 revision by September 2017.

Why was ISO 14001 revised?

All ISO standards are reviewed every five years to establish if a revision is required in order to keep it current and relevant for the marketplace. ISO 14001:2015 is designed to respond to latest trends and ensure it is compatible with other management system standards.

What are the main changes to the standard?

The key changes relate to:
• Increased prominence of environmental management within the organization's strategic planning processes
• Greater focus on leadership
• Addition of proactive initiatives to protect the environment from harm and degradation, such as sustainable resource use and climate change mitigation
• Improving environmental performance added
• Lifecycle thinking when considering environmental aspects
• Addition of a communications strategy

Over the last 12 months, The Bri-Stor Group management teams have collectively engaged in revising their current working practices and procedures to meet the requirements of the new standard, whilst still remaining compliant to their other existing obligations.

With thanks to all employees and the management team for their dedication and commitment to protecting the environment, which ensured we successfully gained this certification.
