Welcome on webpage of POLISH FORUM ISO 14000 ASSOCIATION

POLISH FORUM ISO 14000 is an independent, non-profit organization gathering individuals and legal entities involved in environmental management issues. The Association was founded 1996 in Warsaw. The number of members has reached 120 individuals and 25 organizations from all over Poland. Our individual members are: environmental management  experts (ie. management reps from organizations maintaining Environmental Management Systems), environmental auditors and qualified EMAS verifiers.  Entities supporting the Association are ISO 14001 certified or EMAS registered organizations, environmental consultancies, accredited ISO 14001 certifiers and EMAS verifiers.

Our objectives:

  • to promote environmental management as effective way of protecting environment and improve competitiveness, and
  • to support initiatives improving the quality of environmental management applications in Poland.

Co-operation

The Association acts as a platform enabling exchange of information and experiences among industrial organizations, policy makers, regulatory and enforcement authorities. We co-operate with number of other organizations and institutions dealing with environmental management eg. Polish Centre for Accreditation (PCA), Ministry of Environment, General Directorate for Environment Protection and Polish Standardization Committee (PKN). The Association is a Polish branch of International Network for Environmental Management.

EMAS implementation

The important field of the activity was implementing EMAS Regulation in Poland. Apart of active participation in number of EMAS related projects, our representative was chairing the Examination Committee for EMAS verifiers. Under current EMAS verifiers accreditation programme of PCA we provide periodical training for EMAS in line with our own programme approved by the Ministry of Environment.

Standardization, legislation and regulation

Our representatives are members of the Environmental Committee at PCA and Technical Committee no 270 at PKN. We were representing Poland in Technical Committee 207 (Environmental Management) of International Standard Organization in the works on ISO 14001:2015. The Association was also the official translator of this standard into Polish language.

The Association provides also comments to the legal acts related to environmental management prepared by the Ministry of Environment.

Our members were involved in number of EU financed projects related to environmental management. We are open for international cooperation.
