ISO 14006 Environmental management systems – Guidelines for incorporating ecodesign


ISO 14006 was published in 2011. Following consultation with National Standard Bodies (NSB) it has been decided to revise the standard starting late 2016 and taking 2 years - fast track process. The scope of the standard will remain the same

Mandate for revision

The revision of ISO 14006 shall consider:

  • the new editions of ISO 14001:2015, ISO 14004:2016 and other relevant standards;
  • the principles and concepts of design and development in the latest edition of ISO 14001;
  • the high level structure (HLS), identical core text and common terms and core definitions of Annex SL Appendix 2 of the ISO Directives Part 1;
  • that the revised standard should be independent of the numbering and exact wording used in ISO 14001, any other relevant standard and Annex SL Appendix 2 so that it will not be automatically necessary to revise ISO 14006 every time either ISO 14001 or any other relevant standard is revised.


Specifically, the revision shall:

  • avoid overlap with IEC/ISO JWG ECD 62959;
  • take into account TC207's decision on the review of ISO/TR 14062;
  • produce a standalone standard. Work plan / process
