Environmental labels and declarations - Type III environmental declarations - Principles and procedures (Adopted ISO 14025:2006, first edition, 2006-07-01)
This is the first edition of CAN/CSA-ISO 14025, Environmental labels and declarations - Type III environmental declarations - Principles and procedures, which is an adoption without modification of the identically titled ISO (International Organization for Standardization) Standard 14025 (first edition, 2006-07-01). This Standard replaces CAN/CSA-ISO/TR 14025-01, Environmental labels and declarations - Type III environmental declarations (adopted ISO/TR 14025:2000).
The ISO 14000 family of Standards was developed by environmental experts from around the world, under the auspices of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Technical Committee 207.
This Standard was reviewed for Canadian adoption by the CSA Technical Committee on Environmental Labelling, under the jurisdiction of the Strategic Steering Committee on Business Management and Sustainability, and has been formally approved by the Technical Committee. This Standard has been approved as a National Standard of Canada by the Standards Council of Canada.
This International Standard establishes the principles and specifies the procedures for developing Type III environmental declaration programmes and Type III environmental declarations. It specifically establishes the use of the ISO 14040 series of standards in the development of Type III environmental declaration programmes and Type III environmental declarations.
This International Standard establishes principles for the use of environmental information, in addition to those given in ISO 14020.
Type III environmental declarations as described in this International Standard are primarily intended for use in business-to-business communication, but their use in business-to-consumer communication under certain conditions is not precluded.
This International Standard does not override, or in any way change, legally required environmental information, claims or labelling, or any other applicable legal requirements.
This International Standard does not include sector-specific provisions, which may be dealt with in other ISO documents. It is intended that sector-specific provisions in other ISO documents related to Type III environmental declarations be based on and use the principles and procedures of this International Standard.
