ISO Proceedings


On July 29, 1999, the Pacific Institute for Studies in Development, Environment and Security hosted a half-day workshop entitled Security ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems and Public Policy. Approximately 30 people attended the event, with 16 public interest groups and 6 state and federal agency offices represented. Participants from the non-profit sector included state and national conservation organizations, environmental justice groups, and local community-based organizations. Government agencies represented included various offices within Cal/EPA, U.S. EPA Region IX, and U.S. EPA Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics (see Appendix A for a list of participants).

The purpose of the workshop was to provide a forum for the NGO community and state and federal agencies to discuss the emerging role of environmental management systems (EMSs), such as ISO 14001, within the context of public policy.
