ISO 14001 2015 is the latest version of environmental management system standard from the international organization ISO. First edition was iso 14001:1996 and the second edition was iso 14001:2004. Both of them versions are out of date.
All standards are periodically reviewed by Geneva based international organization ISO to ensure they still meet market requirements. The current version is ISO 14001:2015, It is known as EMS international standard. and certified organizations were given a three-year transition period to adapt their environmental management system to the new edition of the standard. The new version environment standard focuses on the improvement of environmental performance rather than the improvement of the management system itself.
Now our environment is in great risk. From the beginning people have been destroying the god gifted nice nature according to his own intention without judgement of its good and bad sites. God has created all the forest, water, river, sea, air, animal for human beings welfare. But from the beginning human kind is doing wrong. Their knowledge is limited. They have been destroying the natures in unplanned manner.
After committing the great mistake on our nature now world leaders are understanding and gathering together to save our nature anyway. The world leaders sit together in a big city to discuss how they can contribute to save our earth.
Unplanned industrialization, deforestation are the major causes of destruction of our nature. Due to unplanned industrialization the rich country has cut the trees, polluted the air and water too much. The industrial wastes and harmful chemicals are flowing to the river, sea and canal. So, different water based animal are going to be destroyed.
Due to unplanned industrialization we have polluted our air by adding too much toxic gas and Carbon dioxide. To safe living on the earth it is time to reduce those harmful things from our environment.
To remove all those adverse things from our earth there is no alternative to work together. That’s why each year worlds leaders sit together to work on those issues.
We hope in each climate change summits should create some rules for the world to bring back our nature to the previous stage. Like reduce carbon emission level, reduce deforestation, reduce car environment harmful vehicle production etc.
To work unitedly it is very much important to adapt iso 14001 standard effectively. Every organizations around the world specially manufacturing industries should implement ISO 14001 2015 guidelines very strictly to save our environment.
Very strict message can be delivered to all the nations from the UN that without implementation iso 14001 2015 guidelines in each industry no country will get any assistance from the various international forum like UNO, IMF, WB, ADB etc.
Our planet is going to be heated by increasing 1-2 degree centigrade temperature in each year. If this flow continue the world will become unusable place for all creatures. That’s mean certain death of all creatures on this earth.
So, no more delay and no more negligence from the world leaders to take effective action plan to implement ISO 14001 2015 standard throughout the all industries. If world leader cannot do that our next generation will not be able to live in this earth.

Quality Certificate is a growing demand for various industries right now in Bangladesh. So, this is the keyword of my post in this month. Though there is many meaning of quality certificate but here in this post I will discuss only International quality or ISO Quality Standard Certificate.
ISO 9001 is also known as quality certificate or Quality Management System Certificate. It is also known as QMS in a nutshell.
9001:2015 is the latest version of ISO 9001 standard. It started in 1987. Until now it is revised five times since then. Now it is in fifth version. If you want to get quality certificate then ISO 9001:2015 is the right version for you. Previous all versions have been expired and back dated.
What does it mean quality certificate? In ISO it means quality management of a organization. Quality of different sections or quality of different department in the organization. Quality for HR Admin, Sales marketing, Procurement, Production etc. In a word quality for organization means maintaining quality in different departments of a organization.
As an example for quality in production, what does it mean? It means how you are maintaining quality of your product? Are you monitoring the product production process. Are you measuring of the product’s criteria during the production? Does it meet the client’s requirement or your own specification data? Are you keeping record of your error products? Are you taking CA Plan against frequently happened error? All these things are checked in production during ISO audit.
Participating in audit is mandatory for achieving and holding your ISO Quality certificate. Audit helps to find the facts in your production. Production staffs are asked to show the quality checking record, wastes record, machine breakdown record etc. during the ISO audit.
Not only ISO audit. Internal audit is also mandatory for ISO Certification or after ISO Certification. Usually internal audit (IA)is done inside the organization by it’s own staffs or it can be done by hiring an ISO Consultant. Without performing IA you cannot hold your iso quality certificate. It will be suspended if you do not perform IA on regular basis.
Getting a quality certificate means you are appointing your agent who will give you report of your whole organization or according to your certification scope. ISO Quality auditor will find the real facts actually what are happening in your organization during the audit, usually once in a year ISO audit is done.
Worldwide quality certificate has a great demand. Specially for EU and Middle East Buyers it is asked to the exporters or suppliers to have this certificate. It ensures the quality of your organization.
For smooth and efficient operation of a company quality certificate has a great value. It is a great tool to see your organization. It helps to get new orders from new buyers. It helps to increase your internal quality. Finally it helps to earn more revenue for your company.

Bangladesh is a developing country. It is trying to be industrialized. Without industrialization no nation can be self sufficient and developed. To increase export it is necessary to develop the management system of an organization. Very often it is seen due to lack of money many organizations cannot adopt ISO Certificate due to excessive cost of Certification Bodies in Bangladesh.
From the beginning few certification bodies are taking huge money from different types of organization in Bangladesh. Due to uncontrolled situation of Bangladesh Government on foreign CBs it is happening. As a result only well established or big size companies are able to get iso certified. On the other-hand small medium size organizations are unable to get quality management systems certificate.
