Foreword
ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide fed-
eration of national standards bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of
preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO
technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which
a technical committee has been established has the right to be represented
on that committee. International organizations, governmental and non-
governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collabo-
rates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on
all matters of electrotechnical standardization.
Draft International Standards adopted by the technical committees are cir-
culated to the member bodies for voting. Publication as an International
Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting
a vote.
International Standard ISO 14012 was prepared by Technical Committee
ISO/TC 207, Environmental management, Subcommittee SC 2, Environ-
mental auditing and related environmental investigations.
Annexes A, B and C of this International Standard are for information only.

Introduction
To support the application of environmental management systems and en-
vironmental auditing, guidance is needed on qualification criteria for en-
vironmental auditors. The aim of this International Standard is to provide
such guidance.
Internal auditors need the same set of competencies as external auditors
but may not meet in all respects the detailed criteria described in this Inter-
national Standard, depending upon such factors as
— the size, nature, complexity and environmental impacts of the organ-
ization;
— the rate of development of the relevant expertise and experience
within the organization.
