Definition of IMS

An integrated management system (IMS) combines all related components of a business into one system for easier management and operations. Quality, Environmental, and Safety management systems are often combined and managed as an IMS. These systems are not separate systems that are later joined together, rather they are integrated with linkages so that similar processes are seamlessly managed and executed without duplication.

As a part of gaining ISO certification, it is important to have a good quality management system that not only meets the standards, but it will also improve business processes.

Do you have an IMS or are you considering integrating your Quality, Environment, and Safety Systems? By integrating your systems you can reduce the audit duration. Why not ask for a Quote?

 

 

1st & 2nd Party Audits
In addition to 3rd party certification, Sci Qual International can offer 1st & 2nd party audits.

1st Party Audits
As long as you are not certified by Sci Qual International we can conduct internal audits of your management system to assist you in meeting your compliance requirements under a range of standards. This offers the advantage of an experienced auditor confirming that your internal procedures are being followed and that you are applying a continuous improvement and risk based approach.

Note: If you are certified by Sci Qual International we cannot conduct your internal audits as this would represent a conflict of interest under our JAS-ANZ accreditation.

2nd Party Audits
Sci Qual International can conduct second party audits to assess the performance of your suppliers or compliance with contract requirements etc. We have auditors experienced in QMS, EMS, OHS and Food safety certification.
