ISO 14010s - Environmental Auditing is the first complete guide to passing or conducting an environmental audit. It covers the entire auditing process, describing purposes, goals and principles of an environmental audit; auditing criteria; responsibilities of each member of the audit team; every phase of the process, including the audit plan, opening meeting, data gathering, report and follow-up; re-audits and continuous improvement. Above all, this book is practical. An accompanying diskette contains easy-to-use tables, checklists and worksheets that streamline preparation and cut costs for both auditors and auditees. These tools are compatible with WordPerfect 5.1 for DOS, Microsoft Word 6.0, and Microsoft Excel 5.0. Excel worksheets contain not only the essential ISO 14001 requirements, but also formulas that accept site-specific information and automatically calculate whether a site should pass its audit. Whether you're planning to obtain an ISO certification or not, this book presents critical information you need to meet regulatory standards, avoid unanticipated liability and meet the high environmental expectations of your customers. Environmental consultants and students will find it equally valuable.
