WILL AN INTEGRATED MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS SUIT MY BUSINESS?

An Integrated Management Systems can be a perfect fit for many businesses wanting greater efficiency. But some may prefer to keep their ISO management separate.

Before you go ahead, it’s worth bearing the following in mind:

  • Structure: If individual Standards are currently handled by different managers, you may need to reorganise them so that they work together more closely. You may even prefer to put one person in charge of the whole integrated platform.
  • Consistency: An integrated system means that all of your Standards are viewed as a single unit due to their crossovers. If an auditor flags up areas for improvement (non-conformances) for just one Standard, this will affect the whole integrated product. Consistency across the Standards is key.
  • Audits: In order to assess the compliance and relevance of your system, an external audit may require more preparation and time.
  • Implementation: If you’re new to ISOs and want to achieve multiple Standards in one go, you will need to implement good business practices in several areas at once. But if you have the resources and staff to see it through, it can be a great way to achieve a hole-in-one. And of course, if you already have one Standard, you are well on your way to achieving another.
  • Responsibility: Depending on your business’ structure, you may discover some clashes for the responsibility of a quality management system and an environmental system.
  • Documentation: To ensure that every aspect of your integrated system is mapped out and maintained, the documentation to support it can become more detailed and intricate
