Abstract [en]

Sustainable development is something people have

been talking about for decades and it is something

many organizations working with globally. One way to

work with it is to introduce an environmental

management system that helps an organization to

improve their environmental performance and meet its

environmental objectives. ISO 14001 is a standard

applicable environmental management system that

organizations can certify against. 2015 came a new ISO

14001, so companies that today have the old standard

from 2004 need to analyze the new set of requirements

and implement it in their operations.

OKG, which owns three nuclear reactors in Sweden is

certified to ISO 14001: 2004. The purpose of this report

is to examine the gaps that exist between the different

standards and which of these gaps are gaps against

OKG's operational systems. The methods for performing

gap analysis consists of information, meetings, training,

and data collection, some of the gap analysis has been

done at OKG.

The outcome of the gap analysis shows that it is not

only the standard's structure and composition that has

changed. Many new requirements have been added and

it has become tougher demands on top management's

commitment and dedication to the organization's

environmental management system. Some requirements

have similar structure in the old and new standard.

Other demands have however been given a more

detailed design in the new standard.

Discussions are ongoing on how much work needs to be

done on the introduction of the new standard,

everything depends on how the organization's

environmental management system is today. OKG

belonging to an industry with high demands already

have a part of the new standard implemented in their

operations, partly due to the company is certified to the

old standard, partly due to other standards authority in

some respects makes similar demands on the activities

OKG conducts.

The conclusion shows, as already mentioned, that some

of the new requirements have already been taken into

custody in OKG's operational systems while in other

cases it has identified gaps where further analysis

needs to be done and correct implementation is verified

before the new requirements take effect.

The implemented gap analysis forms the basis for

OKG's continued efforts to implement the new standard.
