Integrating Multiple ISO Management Systems
Over the past several years, the number of management systems has greatly increased to reflect the demands of more organizations looking to improve their performance. Many companies are looking for ways to improve in different areas and therefore many companies have more than one ISO management system.
Many organizations benefit from implementing multiple management systems. When they do so, it allows them to ensure their systems and processes are in line with their objectives, allows them to maintain their business model through ever-changing environments, and it simplifies audits. As a result of many organizations seeking certification to multiple standards, Standard Stores has created several products that will allow you to choose which standards you want to implement and an easy guide on how to meet multiple certifications.
ISO’s useful guide to integrating management system standards has been updated and you can find information here. This handbook provides a practical guide for organizations to effectively align their management systems with their strategies, plans and operations. The book has illustrations as applied to real-world organizational contexts and relevant case studies.

Integrating multiple standards can help improve many aspects of your organization from quality to energy, environmental performance or occupational health and safety. The journey for continual improvement and sustained practices has promoted organizations to seek certification to ISO standards.
Today, ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System, ISO 50001:2018 Energy Management System and ISO 14001:2014 Environmental Management System and ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety Management System are some of the most popular management systems, and many organizations are interested in integrating multiple standards at a time.
