Integrated Quality Management System

Integrated Management System

Integrated Management System

An integrated management system (IMS) is a framework combining two or more management systems. The most common integration is comprised of systems based on ISO 9001ISO 14001 and BS OHSAS 18001. However, there are a lot more IMS variations combining such management systems as ISO/IEC 27001ISO 22000 (HACCP)ISO 13485/488, SA 8000, ISO/TS 16949 etc.

Verified Facts: About 10 years ago, IMS development and implementation was essential mainly for large export-oriented companies in metallurgical, processing and chemical industries; however today flexible alignment with requirements of consumers / investors / employees / community has become a prerequisite for doing business with consumer goods manufacturers and an essential qualification criterion applied by non-food retail networks.

Benefits of the Integrated Management System

An integrated management system is a complex of systems running as a single framework. Their correlated and joint functioning boosts the organization's sustainability and competitive power.

Other IMS benefits include:

  • involvement of the personnel of all departments in the processes of system management development, implementation and improvement;
  • consolidation of procedures and approaches (with resultant resources saving) used to ensure compliance with similar requirements of different standards;
  • saving of resources required to implement and maintain several systems.

IMS Certification in TÜV SÜD

TÜV SÜD Management Service GmbH has developed a procedure for planning and conducting audits of integrated management systems. That procedure allows our customers to optimize the time required to perform audit on site, which, in its turn, may result in an attractive ultimate cost of audit services thanks to, without limitation, the concurrent audit processes and saving of auditors' travel costs.

The procedure is only available when auditors qualified in all IMS standards are involved. TMS RUS has a large pool of staff and non-staff auditors authorized to audit various management systems in various industries.
