How do I add an objective?

  Getting Started, Objectives


Under ISO 14001, 9001 and 18001, businesses must establish objectives. Objectives must be documented, measurable (if practicable), communicated, monitored, and updated (as required).

The Objectives register allows you to document your objectives on LUS. Objectives can then be linked to relevant risks and opportunities and to your legal register.

How do I add an objective?

1. There are three ways to add an Objective.
