SGS is the first to introduce IRCA approved introductory CPD courses on ISO/DIS 9001 and ISO/DIS 14001

13/10/2014

Hot on the heels of the publication of ISO/DIS 14001 in July, SGS is proud to be the first professional learning and development organisation to offer ISO 14001:2015 (DIS) and ISO 9001:2015 (DIS) introductory training as one-day IRCA Approved CPD courses, and the only organisation to obtain this status for both.

SGS’s ‘Introduction to ISO 14001:2015 (DIS) CPD’ course is suitable for any organisation that holds a valid ISO 14001 Environmental Management System certificate, is interested in becoming certified in the future, or is keen on learning about the updates related to the evolution of the planned revision.

SGS is the first professional learning and development organisation to offer the one-day course as IRCA Approved CPD and the only organisation that has obtained this status for both ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 DIS CPD introductory courses.

Approval from IRCA, the world’s foremost auditor registration body, is a strong endorsement of the quality of SGS’s training courses. IRCA is a quality standard recognised and respected by some 10,000 IRCA registered auditors and professionals across a diverse range of sectors.

About ISO 14001:2015 (DIS)

The scope of the revision by the ISO 14001:2015 sub-committee (ISO/TC 207/SC 1) responsible for the review consists of:
