What has changed with the ISO 14001- Environmental management system revision?

ISO 14001 – Environmental management systems has undergone its first major revision since 1996 to ensure that it continues to serve organizations, maintain its relevance in today’s market place and meet environmental challenges of the future.  The revised environmental management systems standard introduces a new high-level structure of terms, definitions, and headings that will be the same across all management systems standards. This should make it easier for users of several standards, for example, ISO 9001, to integrate their management system standards.
