Integrated Management Systems

Integrated means combined; putting all the internal management practices into one system but not as separate components. For these systems to be an integral part of the company's management system there have to be linkages so that the boundaries between processes are seamless.

Your management system be it Quality ISO9001- Health & Safety OHSAS 18001 or Environmental ISO14001, should operate seamlessly across all components. Integration brings together the processes of these systems for effectivean business management system. You do not need to possess all three standards only two can be integrated.

Integrated Management is relevant to any organization, regardless of size or sector, looking to integrate two or more of their management systems into one cohesive system with a holistic set of documentation, policies, procedures and processes. Typically, organizations most receptive to this product will be those who have maturing management systems and who wish to introduce other management systems to their organization with the benefits that those bring.

Systems Assured can assist with your requirements if you already hold a UKAS ISO standard and wish to add a additional standard then we would recommend Integration.
We can assist if you hold two standards and need assistance to streamline them and then integration.
Companies that already hold both ISO9001 & ISO14001 depending on the status of each system if they are streamlined, will find that integration is a relatively low cost.
