What is an Integrated Management System (IMS)?

Definition of IMS

An integrated management system (IMS) combines all related components of a business into one system for easier management and operations. Quality, Environmental, and Safety management systems are often combined and managed as an IMS. These systems are not separate systems that are later joined together, rather they are integrated with linkages so that similar processes are seamlessly managed and executed without duplication.

As a part of gaining ISO certification it is important to have a good quality management system that not only meets the standards, but it will also improve business processes.

Do you have an IMS or are you considering integrating your Quality, EMS and Safety Systems? By integrating your systems you can reduce the audit duration. Why not ask for a quote.
