The ISO 14002 series
Organizations have varying priorities related to environmental management based on their internal and external contexts, their interactions with the environment, as well as the concerns and requirements of their interested parties. The ISO 14002 series provides topic-specific guidance and examples for organizations that want to apply their environmental management system to a more focused set of environmental aspects or a combination of specific environmental aspects and environmental conditions. It supplements the general requirements and guidance in ISO 14001 and ISO 14004.
Part 1 of the ISO 14002 series provides generic guidance for organizations on how to manage one or more environmental topic areas based on an ISO 14001 environmental management system. Part 2 is currently under development and will address the environmental topic area water.
