Integrated Management System Certification:
Management System Standards suitable for integration include ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and ISO 22000.
In some cases, EQA can send an auditor with competence in all the standards which are being included in the management system certification, in other cases, EQA will send a team of auditors who between them have the necessary skills to audit all the standards incorporated into the integrated management system.
EQA have developed logo’s for integrated management systems (ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001). Clients have the choice of using the integrated logo’s or using the individual logo’s.
The move by ISO to use the same “High Level Text” for new management system standards and updates to existing management system standards will make the task of implementing integrated management systems easier.
