Once you have your system developed and you commence working to your processes, it should take approximately 3 months to achieve Certification to ISO 14001:2015. This is of course, also dependent upon the UKAS Assessment Body having resource availability to undertake the Assessment. Certification can be achieved sooner, however we do recommend having sufficient time to fully implement your system
We work with a high number of UKAS Assessment Bodies, and although we would never recommend one in particular, we can provide details of Assessment Bodies based in the UK. They will then provide you a separate quotation for the Assessment.
