Integrated Management System

The increase in need to implement various Management Systems that are emerging as best practice documents, at the same time there is also increasingly concern on how to implement each one of those that are relevant. Besides, traditionally organizations of all kinds have adopted different management systems (i.e. QMS: ISO 9001, EMS: ISO 14001, OHSMS: ISO 45001, SA 8000, ISO 22000 and ISO/IEC 27001, IATF 16949) at a different period of the times in succession based on ISO versions of management systems.

Accordingly there is also a great movement in institutionalizing a structured, systematic and documented management systems approach to achieve the identified objectives that are crucial to the business. Hence the approach is to integrate the Management Systems.

Everyone today needs to be able to monitor their business closely; this is applicable in every form of business. Unless there is a close watch, quality can never be ensured. Having multiple quality management systems are a must but having an integrated management system helps drastically too. With such a certification in place, you would be assured of a good growth pattern.

  • Integrated documentation.
  • Reduction in number of audits
  • Saving of time and cost
  • Improved effectiveness and efficiency to achieve goods to achieve goals & vision of organization..
