List of questions to ask an ISO 14001 consultant

Before you hire a consultant for your ISO 14001 project implementation, make sure you have the answers to these important questions.


Examine your options

Now it’s time to do a little research regarding your implementation options. Essentially, there are 3 ways for your company to get certified in ISO 14001:

  • All alone – this is definitely the hardest method, and takes the most time. This is because you have to develop every document yourself and work out each step by yourself. Lots of organizations try this, but not many actually manage to complete the implementation. Sometimes, after several months – or even years – these businesses figure out that they’ve wasted a great deal of time and money, and gotten nowhere.
  • Hire a consultant – It’s true that a consultant take you step by step through the whole project. It’s also true that they’ll mail you a huge bill once they’re finished. But, if this is the method that’s right for you, be sure and check out our ISO 14001 consultant checklist to assess your consultant’s expertise (which can vary a great deal from consultant to consultant).
  • Do it yourself with support – it’s how we roll here at the 14001Academy. We give you all of the document templates, professional expertise, and plenty of support for you to become certified in ISO 14001 without that expensive consultant.
