What is the New Annex SL Platform?

Annex SL is a new management system format that helps streamline creation of new standards, and make implementing multiple standards within one organization easier.

While many standards have common elements, they were described and organized differently, making it difficult for organizations to implement multiple standards.

“Annex SL” further addresses these issues by creating a “template” upon which ISO MSS are to be built in the future.

How Will Annex SL Help You?

An example of Annex SL’s potential may be seen in examples of how documents are more easily managed. For example, Integrated Standards store specializes in providing the basic documents that those seeking multiple standards certification can tailor to their needs. Here is the previous structure of ISO 14001 and ISO 9001:

ISO 14001:2015, ISO 9001:2015, ISO 50001:2018, ISO 45001:2018 etc. are now both based on the Annex SL framework and therefore shares common terms and definitions. On a practical level, Annex SL improved and streamlined this combination process. 

  • 0: Introduction
  • 1: Scope
  • 2: Normative references
  • 3: Terms and definitions
  • 4: Context of the organization
  • 5: Leadership
  • 6: Planning
  • 7: Support
  • 8: Operation
  • 9: Performance evaluation
  • 10: Improvement

Building Standards Specificity On Annex SL’s Mandated Structure

Annex SL solves the problem of potential redundancy in basic structure for companies wishing to deploy multiple standards. It requires that a time/effort-saving common structure be used for recurring quality management standard elements. But it allows more specifics to be added for a given area of expertise, i.e. environmental or health and safety.

What Standards Use Annex SL?

  • ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System
  • ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System
  • ISO/IEC 27001, Information technology: Security techniques, Information security management systems
  • ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health & Safety Management System

And there are some sectors that implemented Annex SL including:

  • International Automotive Task Force – IATF 16949
  • International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) – AS9100/10/20
