Expert BIS consultants will assist you in implementing an ISO 14001 system customized for your facility to enhance regulatory compliance, improve your competitive position, reduce operating costs and attain ISO 14001 certification, if desired. The approach is to evaluate your company's current systems and develop internal expertise for integrating and applying ISO 14001 standards into your existing management systems of ISO/TS 16949 or ISO 9001. ISO 14001 certification is a requirement for some suppliers of the Big Three auto companies and other large OEM companies.

BIS consultants will customize a program to help you achieve certification to a quality system. With expert guidance, including defining your system as a process, BIS will assess your current situation and design a plan to create and implement a continuous improvement system in your company. Our successful implementation process does not allow the system to be just the quality or engineering departments, but the entire organization. Your own employees will drive the system so that they own and support the changes.
