3 4.1 General requirements Establish, document, implement, maintain and continually improve an environmental management system (EMS) as set out in in this international standard Define and document the scope of it’s EMS

4 4.2 EMS policy Management review Feedback from measuring Policy Audit

9 4.3 Planning Determine aspects that can have significant impacts

20 4.4.4 EMS documentation Documentation must include:
the policy and objectives and targets; a description of the scope of the EMS describes the core elements of the management system, their interaction and a reference to related documents; documents including records required by ISO 14001; documents including records for effective planning, operation and control of process related to the aspects
