The reporting system is designed to handle this type of situation. In an environmental management system, the nonconformity will be associated with actions, events or situations.

Calibration and measuring equipment As in ISO 9001, monitoring and measuring equipment must be calibrated and maintained and records kept so that there is evidence that the equipment is sufficiently accurate for its purpose. You may have measuring equipment built into your processes to keep them under control, or you may take measurements in order to plot your progress towards objectives. Do remember that your measuring equipment only needs to be sufficiently accurate for the purpose. If all you want is to show a trend, the degree of accuracy required will be less than if you have to keep operating parameters within a tight range, or you have safety systems which trigger alarms or shut-down routines if a process is going out of control.

For example, you may have a policy of active involvement in environmental issues in the local community; you may have developed life cycle assessment for your products; you may wish to highlight your intentions to reduce energy usage; you may have a land clean-up initiative. The policy must be appropriate to the nature of your business. It is not uncommon for assessors to find policies which have obviously been borrowed from some other type of industrial sector without due thought.
