The Trinidad and Tobago Bureau Standards (TTBS) is the National Body for Quality Certification as declared in the Standards Act No. 18 of 1997. We offer Certification to ISO 14001:2015 – Environmental management systems — Requirements with guidance for use. The certification process involves an audit of the system to confirm that the requirements have been suitably implemented. ISO 14001 is appropriate for organizations of all types and sizes, be they private, not-for-profit or governmental.

Environmental management systems are used by organizations seeking to manage environmental responsibilities in a systematic manner that contributes to the environmental pillar of sustainability. Achieving a balance between the environment, society and the economy is considered essential to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.

An environmental management system can contribute to sustainable development by:

a)  protecting the environment by preventing or mitigating adverse environmental impacts;

b)  mitigating the potential adverse effect of environmental conditions on the organization;

c)  assisting the organization in the fulfilment of compliance obligations;

d)  enhancing environmental performance;

e)  controlling or influencing the way the organization’s products and services are designed, manufactured, distributed, consumed and disposed by using a life cycle perspective that can prevent environmental impacts from being unintentionally shifted elsewhere within the life cycle;

f)   achieving financial and operational benefits that can result from implementing environmentally sound alternatives that strengthen the organization’s market position;

g) communicating environmental.
