Integrated Management System Certification:
Where a company is seeking certification for more than one Management System, it is best practice to implement a management system which meets the requirements of all the management systems rather than have separate systems for each of the standards.
Integrated Security Certification:
Most security certifications require certification to multiple standards. While there is some cross-over in the requirements, EQA will generally audit each standard individually.
Combined Management System and Security Certification:
Security clients have the choice of implementing Management Systems in order to further demonstrate their professionalism to clients. Having certification to a security system will likely reduce the time needed (and the cost) to obtain certification to a Management System. EQA have several clients who have successfully implemented Quality, Environmental and Health & Safety Management Systems in addition to their security certification.
