Before purchasing a document, make sure it is the correct one that you need. I.e. ISO 9000 is different than ISO 9001. The same applies for ISO 14000, which is different than is 14001. The ones that you probably need are ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 which are the actual standards that set requirements for Quality and environmental management systems.
