Integrated Management Systems certification

An integrated management system is when least two systems are combined while still complying with the requirements of each standard.


 
Management systems are often set up one at a time. As a result they operate in isolation, often to different aims and timetables and sometimes in conflict. Ideally, these systems should be integrated and work together to meet all of the business objectives.

We offer integrated audits - where one audit covers a single management system which fully or partially integrates more than one management system standard into a single set of policies, procedures and processes. By using this approach you can achieve efficiencies that would not be possible by considering each management system separately.

The aim is to streamline processes even further and avoid duplication without compromising the individual systems. The integrated system must comply with the requirements of the individual standards to maintain effectiveness.
Which management systems can be integrated?
A combination of quality, environmental and health & safety systems (ISO 9001, ISO 14001 & OHSAS 18001) is the most common because these apply to all businesses. We can offer any combination of these systems as well as combinations including a wide range of other systems. We will discuss your individual needs and build an audit program that delivers your certification in the most efficient way.
