What is an AS/NZS ISO 14001 Management Review Procedure?
Management reviews are a key element of the AS/NZS ISO 14001 standard and are required to achieve certification. A management review procedure provides a documented process for an organization to follow, so it can periodically review its environmental management system to ensure its suitability and effectiveness.
The procedure should include inputs and action items from all levels of an organization, including top management, employees, and other stakeholders. It should also consider input from the organization’s customers and suppliers. A management review should be conducted regularly to establish the required actions to improve systems, processes and any additional resources needed to improve environmental performance.
What are Management Review Inputs?
Management review inputs can be described as resources such as people, materials, energy, information and finance that are put into a system to seek the desired output.
When management reviews its business performance, it should take into consideration:
- The status of actions taken from previous reviews.
- Any internal or external changes that have an impact on the management system or significant environmental aspects.
- Trend analysis of performance indicators.
- Customer satisfaction and feedback in various forms.
- How the company’s compliance obligations and objectives have been met.
- The process performance and conformity of products and services.
- The results and outcomes of monitoring and measuring activities.
- The results and outcomes of external audits and internal audits.
- How well external providers and suppliers are delivering on requirements.
- How well day-to-day resources are operating and if there is a requirement to adjust resourcing.
- How effective actions have been to reduce and mitigate risks and promote opportunities.
- How the identified opportunities for improvement in the management system(s) have improved performance.
What are Management Review Outputs?
Management review outputs can be described as the actions that are taken to make positive changes and improvements to its business processes.
Management review outputs should be focused on identifying arrangements for:
- The review and update of decisions and actions with strategic planning.
- Opportunities to improve the effectiveness of management system(s) and its associated processes.
- The improvement of products and services relating to customer requirements.
- The review and updating of external and internal issues of concern, needs and expectations of interested parties.
- The updating of process objectives, metrics and key performance indicators.
- The review of customer and internal auditor feedback.
- The review of the effectiveness of corrective actions taken to address risks and opportunities.
- Follow-up activities from previous reviews.
- Identifying any further resource needs at review meetings.
- Follow-up activities from previous management reviews.
- Identifying any further resource needs at management review meetings.
Note: Documented information from management reviews must be recorded and should always be retained. Documents can be in the form of records, results, decisions and completed actions.
Why Should Objectives and Targets be Periodically Reviewed?
Consistent with the requirements of management review outputs, all environmental objectives and targets established through a management review should be evaluated to assess their progress. Objectives that have been achieved may either be upgraded to a higher performance level or be closed out to free up resources for improvements in other areas.
If objectives and targets have not been achieved, the review should investigate why and determine the causes for failing to achieve successful outcomes.
Top management must review any new objectives where it is necessary to improve performance or reach other organizational goals. Company policies should be amended when changes within or outside business parameters render a policy inadequate or inappropriate.
