As a current trend - IMS forges ISO 9001, ISO 14001 & OHSAS 18001 with other International Standards to be made compatible – especially on the system management level. The first IMS in this part of the world was successfully certified as consulted by CCIS in 1997 for P.T. Sanyo Energy Corporate (Indonesia).
Other larger scale IMS projects includ FRP Products Co – for a ‘5 in 1’ integrated management system in 1999, and Jurong Engineering Ltd – for another ‘4 in 1’ integrated management system in 2001.
IMS combines the interests of various standards – including ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, ISO 27000, HACCP, ISO 22000, TS 16949, AS 9100, TL 9000, ISO 13485, SCC, TR8, SMS, PLS, CSR, Finance and more (or a combination of any 2) into one Manual and one set of Procedures for an organization for ease of integrated management actions.
IMS is suitable for any organisation interested in having only ONE management system in place – to cover multiple International Standards – with one COMPANY, one SYSTEM, one MANAGEMENT and, multiple ISSUES REPRESENTATION & CERTIFICATES.
