Practical Example for the Electrical/Electronic Sector

Practical Example for the Electrical/Electronic Sector
These Practical Examples demonstrate how the Generic ISO 14001 EMS Templates can be used by a small and medium sized enterprise (SME) in the electrical/electronic sector as the basis of an effective EMS.  Eight Practical Examples have been created for the hypothetical companies in different trades and with manufacturing activities in Hong Kong and/or Shenzhen as shown below.  In each case the Practical Examples include:
An EMS Manual (EM) - the "road-map" of the EMS, outlining its structure, how it is implemented, and the designation of staff responsibilities, etc;
Environmental Procedures (EP) - describing how the EMS is implemented, such as evaluating significant aspects, staff training, document control, EMS auditing, etc;
Environmental Instructions (EI) - to control specific activities, such as air pollution control, waste management, resource conservation, etc.;
Environmental Records (EF) - "evidence" that the EMS procedures and instructions are working effectively, for example objectives and targets, training records, etc.

The four selected business areas for these Practical Examples have been chosen as a result of statistical research into the number of Hong Kong SME establishments in the different electrical/electronics trades.  The examples will still be of some use to SMEs in other trades in illustrating how the Generic Templates can be used as the basis of an effective ISO14001 EMS.

Case specific information for the hypothetical companies (for instance, company background, process description, organisation and staffing, environmental procedures and instructions) are shown in red to distinguish from the generic templates themselves.  Where the official Chinese versions of requirements such as legislation, industry guidelines, codes of practice, etc, are unavailable, only the English version is provided.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Whilst the information provided in the Register of Environmental Aspects, Register of Legal and Other Requirements and other templates is extensive, it is not exhaustive.  All companies and processes are different.  To be effective your EMS needs to reflect the activities, products and services of your company and address your specific environmental impacts, legal requirements and operational processes, etc.  You will need to tailor your templates carefully, making full use of the User Manual.
