GB/T 24001-2004 idt ISO 14001:2004
Standard for Environmental Management Systems
ISO 14001 is a voluntary standard for environmental management systems, issued by ISO, the International Organization for Standardization.
ISO 14001 provides a systematic approach for improving environmental performance, rather than simply meeting legal requirements. The environmental management system showing the TÜV Rheinland mark is audited and certified by TÜV Rheinland.
Expert auditors analyse and evaluate the customers' organisation. If all necessary requirements are fulfilled, the organisation is certified according to ISO 14001. The environmental management system at the organisation is subject to periodic surveillance.
Certified organisations may use the test mark in their communications.
GB/T 24001 is the Chinese Name of the international Standard ISO 14001. TÜV Rheinland certificates according to GB/T 24001 are issued under accreditation of China National Accreditation for Environmental Management System Certification bodies (CACEB) in Beijing and thus recognised by the local authorities.
