Integrated Management System (IMS)
To achieve certification for one or more management system standards, you may have chosen to implement an integrated management system (IMS) within your organisation - ie. a single management system covering two or more certification standards. In this case, SOCOTEC Certification UK teams will offer you an integrated certification approach.
Why would you choose an integrated management system?
Meeting challenges with increasing stakes
Gaining new competitive advantages. Implementing several certifications will increase your organisation's agility and strategic performance.
Meeting rising customer expectations
With rising customer expectations and attention to detail, you need to ensure you are meeting your client's needs with relevant Intergrated Management Systems.
Seeking continuous improvement
You want to develop new measures and be in constant improvement. Thanks to the framework of the various certifications, you are subject to annual audits. They provide you with a regularity of work and an external view of your organisation.
What are the benefits of an integrated management system?
All the information you prepare for your certification serves several standards. You can therefore optimise your implementation of these resources.
Putting specific procedures in place makes you aware that risks exist. You therefore consider their resolution and reduce the occurrence of these risks.
Preparing for a certification requires time to identify the requirements and then implement them. By preparing you for several certifications at the same time, we help you to reduce this process. This not only saves you time, but also increases your credibility.
