The ISO/TC 207/SC 1 'Environmental management systems' technical committee is responsible for the development of the future standard. A new working group, WG 14, was established for this purpose.
WG 14 will meet for the first time at the end of May 2023, and the goal is to publish the final standard by July 2025.
