The Integrated Management System Model (IMS) is a management model that covered all aspects and consisted of the main needs of existing management system which are ISO 9001, ISO 14001 ,OHSAS 18001 and ISO 22000.
In IMS, the organizations only need to document all IMS principles, objectives, manuals, and the procedures in a single documentation system. There are several approaches which can be taken, depending on an organisation's current position.
If an organisation has a certificated QMS, it can build upon that by adding the necessary processes to cater for health, safety, environmental and other requirements of management system standards. All systems should share the following processes:
• Document development and control
• Internal audit
• Management review
• Corrective action
• Preventive action
Integrated Management System ( IMS ) is a concept whereby functional management is dispersed throughout an organisation so that managers manage a range of functions, eg a manufacturing manager would manage planning, manufacturing, safety, personnel, quality, environment, finance etc.
