ISO Helps Ops Go Green

One thing that stood out while attending Green Fleet Conference last week: if going green, learn more about ISO. Fleet managers and corporate execs are looking at International Organization for Standardization (ISO) policies, such as ISO 14001, and many are adopting them to build total organization green programs. This is part of the process that Green Ride Global makes available to clients. Several operators have mentioned adapting to ISO compliant practices, including Royal Coachman Worldwide. ISO says that its program helps companies reduce energy consumption and improve their image among regulators, customers, and the public. (See www.iso.org for more information.) --J.L.

    All companies exporting products or services to the European Union (EU) may someday be contractually required to have ISO certification to sell into the market. Even today, contractual requirements are finding their way into purchase orders for products manufactured in Japan, the United States and elsewhere. Currently, the requirement for ISO 9001 registration is clearly market-driven. Officials in the EU are considering mandatory regulatory requirements relative to registration. This is especially true in regulated industries, such as medical device manufacturing and telecommunications. For example, as of the summer of 1998, a business is not allowed to sell medical devices in the EU, unless a Notified Body certifies their quality management system and / or products.
