6.1.1 has to do with planning and managing your environmental management system. Basically you need to establish a group of people involved (from all areas of management in order to include everyone and have multiple viewpoints in determining what your environmental concerns are, aka environmental aspects).


An example of this would be that all area managers are part of the environmental management plan, and meet once a month to discuss any findings, areas of concern, etc. The first meeting would be so that each area manager will input their own areas of concern so that the person running the program can see the big picture and put together a detailed plan with an appropriate scope.


6.1.2 has to do with environmental aspects, or what you need to look for. Environmental aspect is defined as any point where workers or processes interact with the environment.


Found a little guidance on this:


Having identified actual and potential environmental impacts and aspects for its operations, the organization must determine which are significant. A defined method and criteria must be applied to do this. Significant environmental aspects must be communicated throughout the organization as appropriate.

The organization is required to maintain documented information of:

  • environmental aspects and associated environmental impacts
  • the criteria which has been applied to determine which environmental aspects result or may result in a significant environmental impact
  • significant environmental aspects
