ISO is the body for internal standardisation, originally established in 1947 to set down requirements to help businesses effectively trade and give assurance to customers on products and services.

It was founded with the idea of answering the question: ”what’s the best way of doing this?”

What is the ISO family of standards?

The ISO 14001 family of standards provides practical tools for companies and organisations to manage their environmental responsibilities, with ISO 14001:2015 and ISO14006:2011 focussing on the environmental systems needed for organisations to achieve this.

The other standards in the ISO family focus on Quality Standards and on Management Standards.
