  1. ISO 14001 4.5.3 RECORDS

  2. Lesson Learning Goals At the end of this lesson you should be able to: • Describe at least three benefits of keeping records • Identify at least four requirements for good record-keeping • Name three kinds of records that must be kept under ISO 14001 • In small groups, list at least ten kinds of records thatshould be kept under ISO 14001

  3. Records: Basic Principles MAKE THEM AND KEEP THEM

  4. Purpose of Records • Keep track of performance, activities, information, operating variables, dates • Demonstrate progress towards targets • Monitor trends • Provide proof of activities • Assess effectiveness of the EMS • Maintain history of operations

  5. ISO 14001 Records says: The organization shall establish and maintain procedures for the identification, maintenance, and disposition of environmental records. These records shall include training records and the results of audits and reviews.

  6. ISO 14001 Records also says: Environmental records shall be legible, identifiable, and traceable to the activity, product or service involved. Environmental records shall be stored and maintained in such a way that they are readily retrievable, and protected against damage, deterioration, or loss. Their retention times shall be established and recorded.

  7. ISO 14001 Recordsone more thing: Records shall be maintained as appropriate to the system and to the organization, to demonstrate conformance to the requirements of this international Standard

  8. In Other Words • Mustkeep records: • of environmental training, audits, and management reviews • to prove the EMS meets ISO 14001 specifications • Records must be: • clear, readable, and complete (i.e., no gaps) • stored securely and accessibly • traceable to original data • kept for a defined period of time

  9. Remember All records are documents BUT not all documents are records • Documented procedures say what should be done • Records say what was done, and the results • All ISO 14001 requirements for documents apply to records

  10. Keep Records of: • Environmental aspects and impacts • Legislation, regulations, permits • Environmental performance indicators • Environmental management program progress reports (i.e., achievement of objectives and targets) • Environmental training (e.g., who and what) • Decision on communication of significant environmental aspects • Communications with interested parties

  11. Keeping Records (Cont’d) • History of changes to documented procedures • Supplier and contractor agreements • Emergency response and drills, incident investigations • Monitoring, instrument calibration, inspection, maintenance • Non-conformance, corrective and preventive actions • Legal compliance • Audit reports • Minutes of management reviews

  12. Concluding Thoughts Important points to remember are: • Records are proof of EMS conformance with ISO 14001 requirements • Records provide a history of EMS information • Keep records clear, orderly, available, secure, for a defined length of time
