Compare ISO 9001 + ISO 14001 + ISO 45001
Integrating an IMS can be more effective and efficient than maintaining individual systems. Whichever method you choose, here is some information:
- Integration Options
- Compare ISO 9001-ISO 14001-ISO 45001
- Review advantages/disadvantages of an IMS
- Read ISO brochure on Integrated Management Systems
There are three primary options the organization must choose between:
- Maintaining two separate systems (9001 and 14001/45001)
- Partially integrated systems
- Fully integrated systems
We offer six versions of the Documentation Package to simplify the process for organizations that already have other management systems (ISO 9001, ISO 14001, etc.) in place or want to deal with more than one standard at a time. We also offer a completely integrated manual.

There are ten common elements in ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001:
- Normative References
- Terms and Definitions
- Context of the Organization
- Performance Evaluation
An IMS takes advantage of these common elements and implementation of 14001 and 45001 is simplified into an existing ISO 9001 certified organization.
ISO 9001 is a Quality Management System (QMS) which gives organizations a systematic approach for meeting customer objectives.

One important difference between ISO 45001 and other international standards is that an organization can self-declare their compliance. Learn More…
Because ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 are very similar, the management systems can be effectively combined, integrated and a self-declaration made (a cost savings option).
