Integrated Management System Certification

Integrated Management System

Integrated management system (IMS) is a management system that meets the requirements of two or more standards (e.g., ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and BS OHSAS) and operates as a whole. The unity of processes, functions and documentation are distinctive features of IMS. The most common model of IMS is where additional quality management systems are added to the quality management system certified as compliant with ISO 9001 and playing the role of the basic system, for example, environmental management and occupational safety systems.

The etsablishment of an IMS in a company is often a consequence of a successfully implemented quality management system. Improving economic performance and obtaining additional benefits from the use of a systematic management approach encourages the company management to extend such approach to other areas.
