Integrated Management Systems
Multiple Standards requirements
Many of the major public and private sector purchasing organisations today require that their suppliers hold multiple ISO standards certifications as a demonstration of good governance.
These requirements more often involve a combination of two or more of the following, ISO 9001 (Quality), ISO 14001 (Environment), ISO 45001 (Health & Safety), ISO 27001 (Information Security), ISO 22301 (Business Continuity), ISO 20000 (IT Service Management) and ISO 50001 (Energy Management).
Implementing Integrated Management Systems
For suppliers who need to achieve two or more of the above standards there are significant advantages in implementing these standards simultaneously as part of an integrated certification programme. In particular the internal and external incremental costs can be significantly reduced. Resource economies are achieved with a multiple standards programme e.g. one gap analysis, one implementation programme, one project team, less potential for duplication and more effective integration of your management systems.
Maintenance of an integrated management system is also more efficient in terms of audits, management review, documentation, and continued assessment visits.
Teamwork IMS consultants are multidisciplined. Our knowledge and experience across a broad base of management systems makes us uniquely equipped to help our customers to establish integrated management systems and lay the foundations for future compliance with other industry standards.
Integrated Management System Project Timescales
Our integrated management system programmes typically involve two or more standards and are normally completed within four to six months from gap analysis to certification.
Integrating ISO Standards with other Compliance Requirements
There are many commonalities across ISO standards and other compliance frameworks, for example, ISO 27001 and GDPR or ISO 50001 and ESOS. Our experienced consultants can help your organisation navigate multiple compliance frameworks avoiding duplicated efforts and creating a system that can readily adopt future compliance requirements.
