Many organizations have adopted or are adopting formal management system standards and/or specifications such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO/IEC 27001, ISO 22000, ISO/IEC 20000 and OHSAS 18001.
Frequently these are operated as independent systems. In all management systems, however, there are certain common elements which can be managed in an integrated way; the essential unity of all these systems within the overall management system of the organization can then be recognized and used to best advantage. Therefore organizations are questioning the approach of having separate systems.
However, if the various management system requirements can be so arranged that the core requirements are addressed in a common way, it is possible to integrate the systems to the degree that is most appropriate to the organization whilst minimizing duplication.
It is therefore essential that the people in the organization are having adequate knowledge & skills for developing & effectively implementing an Integrated Management System (IMS) so that the organization can effectively utilize the time & resources.
