Smithers has pulled its “ISO 14001 Gap Analysis Tool” which featured just over half of the ISO 14001 standard, copied and pasted, with Smithers invoking copyright over the entire thing. That came within hours of my reporting on their copyright faux pas.

Seems that the stable geniuses as Smithers didn’t think to do … you know… root cause analysis or any serious containment, because I just found the exact same tool for ISO 9001 and, sure enough, it contains a huge portion of the ISO 9001:2015 text.

So you can grab that for free, too, at least until they pull it.

They’ve got a similar AS9100 tool, but that does not include the text of AS9100 Rev D itself.
