Integrated Management System Certification
Integrated Management System (IMS)
Organizations today seek a holistic view of the quality, health & safety and environmental (QHSE) risks they face. Integrated management system certification to recognized international standards by WECERT enables you to manage risks efficiently and improve reputation.
Regulation and public scrutiny of companies’ QHSE performance is on the increase. Quality issues, poor labor practices or weak management of environmental impacts can hit reputation and revenues, and harm your ability to hire talented employees. Implementation of QHSE management system standards is an important first step to managing risk.
WECERT offers integrated management system certification to internationally recognized standards.
These include ISO 9001 Quality Management System, ISO 45001 Occupational Health & Safety Management System and ISO 14001 Environmental Management System. By integrating your management systems and your certification program, you can gain visibility, better track performance and reduce the cost of audits.
Benefits of becoming certified
ISO has recently updated its management system certification standards for QHSE and Enterprise Risks to ensure they meet the needs of modern businesses. All certification standards now have a shared High Level Structure, with common processes for identifying risk and preparing documentation. As a result, companies can adopt management system certification standards to address all the risks to their business. These range from major QHSE risks, to governance risks such as Anti-Bribery Management and Asset Management, and operational risks including Information Security Management and business continuity Management.
Each organization implementing integrated management system and receive its certification may anticipate the following benefits:
- Implementing a range of QHSE and Enterprise Risk Management System
- Gaining a Holistic view of the risks facing your company and the effectiveness of your actions to manage them
- Reduction in costs of audits and certificates, thanks to fewer auditor man days and efficient use of internal teams’ time
- Gaining Globally-Recognized Certification
IMPROVE THE COST EFFICIENCY OF AUDITS WITH INTEGRATED MANAGEMENT SYSTEM CERTIFICATION
Adopting a holistic approach to risk management can be highly efficient when you choose to certify with a single certification body such as WECERT . By carrying out all audits at once, you can reduce the number of man days spent by WECERT auditors. The process is also less time-consuming for internal teams and can help avoid audit fatigue. Finally, you receive each audit report in the same format, enabling you to easily understand your results, and areas for improvement.

INTEGRATE HEALTH & SAFETY INTO YOUR RISK MANAGEMENT
Holistic risk management just got easier thanks to the introduction of ISO 45001 Occupational Health & Safety Management System. Unlike the previous OHSAS 18001, ISO 45001 is an accredited standard that uses ISO’s High Level Structure, meaning it can be audited alongside other ISO standards as part of an integrated management system certification program.
Complete a Quote Request Form so that we can understand your company and requirements. You can do this by completing either the online quick quote or the online formal quote request form. We will use this information to accurately define your scope of assessment and provide you with a proposal for certification.
Once you’ve agreed your proposal, we will contact you to book your assessment with an WECERT Assessor. This assessment consists of two mandatory visits that form the Initial Certification Audit. Please note that you must be able to demonstrate that your management system has been fully operational for a minimum of three months and has been subject to a management review and full cycle of internal audits.
Following a successful two stage audit, a certification decision is made and if positive, then certification to the required standard is issued by WECERT. You will receive both a hard and soft copy of the certificate. Certification is valid for three years and is maintained through a programme of annual surveillance audits and a three yearly recertification audit.
