Eliminate inefficiencies and duplication

Integrated management systems (IMS) certification is a holistic approach that combines multiple aspects of an organisation’s performance in order to meet the requirements of several management system standards. These include standards such as ISO 9001 (quality management), ISO 14001 (environmental management), ISO 45001 (occupational health and safety), ISO 27001 (Information Security) and ISO 50001 (energy management).

How can you optimize your resources?

Simultaneously meeting the requirements of multiple management system standards puts a significant strain on an organisation’s resources. Instead of streamlining processes and resources, this creates unnecessary duplication of effort and budget allocation. You must therefore balance the achievement of management system standards against the resources required to gain certification.

An IMS increases efficiencies through the use of simplified processes and documentation, thereby eliminating the elemental approach, lowering effort duplication, improving system performance and reducing costs. IMS certification means that certification for multiple management system standards is usually evaluated in a single, comprehensive audit. Organisations spend less time preparing for audits and responding to their findings, significantly reducing the overall investment of time and money.

How can we help you?

TÜV SÜD is an internationally accredited Certification Body for a wide range of management systems, and our certificates are accepted and recognised globally. Our auditors have proven experience of how IMS certification reduces cost and risks for both large and small organisations.

The IMS certification mark equips your organisation with a powerful and recognisable demonstration of your commitment to excellence, sustainability and reliability. For example, the certification mark shown on the left signifies compliance with quality, environment, energy and safety requirements.
