Why are we trying to do with an Integrated
QEH & S Management System?

Managers of most mature companies understand the need for a quality management process. Industrial managers and developers by now know the risk associated with mismanagement of hazardous materials and waste. The difficulty has been how do you do it, which process TQM, Deming, Juran, or Crosby. Etc.

In many ways environmental issues appear to be the most difficult because of the technical complexity associated with re-mediation projects or the design of new chemical processes. Then there is occupational health and safety that many managers think is out of their control. They believe many injury claims are fraudulent but difficult to prove, or that the employee was careless. If they only had more conscientious employees the safety problem would go away! In reality 80–85% of the process failures, including injuries, are caused by process common and multiple root cause, variations built into the process by the existing management system.

Integrated Management systems Registration is for organizations that have a single management system that incorporates two or more management systems standards (e.g. ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015, ISO 22000, ISO 45001 or ISO/IEC 27001) and also complies with PAS 99*.
 
The Integrated Management assessment and certification process is not just about auditing more than one management system at the same time (this is a combined audit service), neither is it demonstrating that an organization's has wrapped up several procedures into one manual. Instead, organizations successfully achieving certification will need to demonstrate that they have ONE management system that encompasses all existing management systems standards into one structure.
 
Which Management System Standards can be integrated?
A typical Integrated Management System might include:

· ISO 9001:2015 (Quality Management)
· ISO 14001:2015 (Environmental Management)
· ISO 45001 (Occupational Health & Safety)
· ISO/IEC 27001 (Information Security)
· ISO 22000 (Food Safety)
· ISO/IEC 20000IT Service Management

This list is not finite and the range of standards that may be incorporated into the integrated management system may vary in some countries / regions.
