The term "Interested Party", is defined in the standard as "a person or organization that can affect, be affected by, or perceives to be affected by a decision or activity."
'Interested party' is an important inclusion in the latest ISO 14001 standard. It was not well-considered in previous ISO 14001 standards. The term is defined in clause 3.2 of the latest standard. It is sometimes referred to as "stakeholder", in lieu of 'Interested party'.
Examples of Interested parties are: neighbors, communities, pressure groups, employees, management and shareholders, external parties, contractors and service providers, manufacturing partners, government or legislative bodies and trade unions.
