How this Handbook is Organized This Wastewater EMS Handbook guides you through EMS implementation based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act model of the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System. The Handbook is designed primarily for EMS implementers, so the heart of it is a step-by-step guide that shows you how to build your EMS one element at a time. We have also added helpful sections to assist you in getting your organization ready to build its EMS, in understanding more about third-party registration of your EMS, and in accessing a number of appendices of additional tools, materials, and information resources. The Wastewater EMS Handbook is organized into 5 sections: What is an EMS and Why Do I Want One; Getting My Facility Ready to Implement an EMS; Step-by-Step Implementation Guide; Third-Party EMS Registration; and Appendices.
