Audit 123 – ISO 14001 Workbook

  • IAS

Key Points

This Audit 123 checklist workbook is based on the information provided in the ISO 14001 international standard for environmental management systems, assisting organisations in achieving and confirming conformity with ISO 14001. It is designed to suit all levels and sizes of organisation, from small single units to large global organisations, in the UK and internationally.

The workbook can be used to conduct internal audits, gap analysis, external audits or to provide a route map to conformity with ISO 14001, covering clauses like Leadership, Planning, Operational processes and Performance evaluation.

The workbook provides an assessment of the policy and processes that are in place to determine if they conform to ISO 14001 requirements for an environmental management system.

By recording findings, nonconformities and actions, the workbook confirms the extent to which the management system conforms with the ISO 14001 standard and the degree of success in implementing the system.

Separate checklist guidance has been published to accompany this workbook and guide auditor decision making, enabling audits to be comprehensive and consistent.


The ISO 14001 checklist workbook can be used in its current form without preparation or adaptation and enables an auditor to quickly identify the strengths and weaknesses of an environmental management system.

The user friendly workbook reduces audit preparation, simplifies analysis and aids report creation. The unique progressive evaluation and scoring system makes the checklists easy to use and the style encourages acceptance of findings/nonconformities and implementation of corrective actions.

The publication is wire bound for ease of use, printed in colour and 76 pages:
