Hone your business’ focus on quality and information security with one smart combined system.
With straightforward language, similar structures and aligned interests, these ISOs are perfect partners for integration. With one streamlined and structured approach, every member of your team will know exactly what to do in order to maintain best practice for quality and information security, giving your business the opportunity to take performance to the next level.
If you want to drive continual improvement across your company and build your customers’ trust in your business’ quality and security, this integrated system could be the right solution for you.
An Integrated Management System consists of a set of pre-defined processes and procedures that give businesses the structure they need to achieve best practice in quality, environmental impact, information security, occupational health & safety, and much more.
Combining multiple Standards into one common system streamlines these processes, improving efficiency and making them easier to manage. It also means you can achieve greater output through fewer processes, giving you more time to focus on other essential business needs.
Both of these ISOs boast an Annex SL structure, which means that their clauses are presented in the same order and format to form a common framework. This means that you can align processes for greater simplicity and efficiency.
By aligning these ISOs, you can create a single documented system. This allows you to implement improvements across your business and reduce the possibility of negative impacts in the future.
With streamlined processes, you can reduce the amount of time needed to maintain compliance. And by employing just one IMS manager, you can take control of performance and drive deliverability.
You will also gain greater control 24/7 through our online management system platform, QMS Connect. This system also comes with additional benefits, including built-in document control, templates and automated task management.
The international Standard for quality has many commonalities with the ISO for information security management. Common clauses include demonstrating how you intend to improve, how you will measure the performance of your Integrated Management System, and how you will evaluate business practices.
Here are some key comparisons and contrasts between the two.
With an Integrated Management System, your processes will work together so that each function is aligned and can contribute to one shared goal: improving your overall performance.
Thanks to one set of documentation, policies, procedures and processes for all Standards, you can also reduce risks and increase profitability.

With the help of QMS, the certification process can take as little as 45 days to complete
A QMS Consultant will visit your Organisation to review and document your current processes and procedures, highlighting any areas that do not meet the requirements of the Standard.
Now its time to make sure any required process or procedural changes are made, as highlighted in the Review. QMS can provide templates to assist you in doing this.
An Auditor must now visit your Organisation to check that the documented processed are being followed and that the necessary changes have been made. Once they are satisfied, you will be rewarded with your certification.
At QMS we are constantly updating our approach and process to meet the latest changes in how ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 work.
Information security policies form the foundation of an organisation’s security and are featured as part of ISO 27001’s controls. But what are they and what should they include?
Maintaining quality, consistency and customer satisfaction is key for success in the manufacturing industry – which is why the Standard for quality management (ISO 9001) could be the perfect partner if you’re looking to get ahead in the industry.
