Welcome > Focus > Integrated management system
The effectiveness of any organisation's Safety, Environment and Quality Management Systems is a major indicator of its ability to manage change and secure a viable future. The cost to an organisation if one or more of its systems are not functioning correctly can be crippling.
Quality, the environment and health and safety are all unified by the concept of risk. Using three separate management systems within one organisation is clearly time-consuming, expensive and inefficient. By integrating your management systems, you can minimise duplication, align your objectives and reduce costs. Download the brochure below for more information on integrated certification.
An integrated management system (IMS) describes several previously separate management systems grouped together to form a single system. For example, it could combine ISO 9001:2000 (quality) certification with ISO 14001 (environmental) certification. A management system is integrated when at least two out of three possible systems (quality, environment and health and safety) are integrated.
Whether you have two or three management systems, AFNOR IRAN can help. We combine our audits for integrated systems, which not only saves you time and money, but also enables you to identify synergies and find the best systems solution for your particular needs.
