An Integrated Management System Audit is a comprehensive approach towards reviewing the performance of an organization's management system. This audit brings together different ISO standards such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and ISO 45001 into a single audit process. The objective of an Integrated Management System Audit is to assess the effectiveness of an organization's management system and its ability to meet various requirements set forth by the selected ISO standards. By conducting an integrated audit, organizations can benefit from reduced audit time and costs, as well as the opportunity to identify potential issues and gaps in multiple systems.
If your organization has committed to a management system that integrates the processes for multiple standards, then an IMS audit can provide a reduction in overall audit duration and therefore certification costs. Additional benefits can include reduced disruption to your business, less documentation, fewer and simpler processes, and improved alignment of objectives across different systems. And of course the primary goal of the assessment activity, which is to help ensure that the quality of your products and services meets the requirements of your customers and other stakeholders.
