Integrating the ISO 9001+14001:2015 Management Systems
The key to an effective Environmental or Quality Management System is designing the Management Processes for efficiency and ease of use. The processes must be carefully thought out, well-organized, and carefully designed to work together to lead your organization to continual improvement. The Quality standard revised in year 2015 is compatible with the year 2015 revision of the Environmental standard. Both standards have identical structures and have the same basic requirements. The Quality and Environmental management systems can be combined, integrated and implemented to save you time and money. Fundamentally, from a quality standpoint, a commitment to continual improvement will meet or exceed customer expectations in the provision of goods and services. Fundamentally, from an environmental viewpoint, it is everyone’s job to protect the environment by preventing pollution and continually improving the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the land we inhabit.
To inform your people on an implementation project and to educate them on what is required to meet the objectives of both the Quality Management System (QMS) and the Environmental Management System (EMS) as an Integrated Management System (IMS), our standards experts have prepared a 57-slide power-point presentation. The presentation covers the following:
- Management Systems
What is ISO 9001 / What is IS0 14001?
- Combining the management systems
Advantages / Disadvantages Benefits of ISO 9001 / Benefits of ISO 14001
- Comparing ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015
Clause 4 through Clause 10
- Integrating ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015
