The ‘QMS’ business world is continually changing and the quality management has been updated to better fit today’s need.
A “risk-based thinking” approach has been introduced, ‘QMS’ to determine the requirements of the business and its management systems. This new approach has enabled a considerable reduction in the prescriptive requirements of the old ISO 9001:2008 Standard, QMS which have been replaced by performance-based requirements, providing greater flexibility for the management systems to suit the needs of the individual organization QMS.
There’s more focus on continually identifying opportunities for improvement for future needs and expectations in meeting customer requirements QMS.
There’s a greater focus on management demonstrating leadership and commitment.
A common framework for all Management System Standards has been introduced to provide greater consistency across all the ISO Management Standards QMS.
ISO 14001 is the international standard for environmental management systems (EMS) and the most widely used EMS in the world, with over 360,000 “ISO 14001 certificates issued globally”. ISO 14001 is the principal management system standard which specifies the requirements for the formulation and maintenance of an EMS.
Specifies the requirements for an environmental management system that an organization can use to enhance its environmental performance QMS.
The Outcome of an environmental management system includes QMS:
• Enrichment of environmental performance QMS
• Fulfilment of compliance obligations QMS.
• Achievement of environmental objective QMS.
ISO 14001:2015 is applicable to any organization, regardless of size, type and nature, and applies to the environmental aspects of its activities, products and services that the organization determines it can either control or influence considering a life cycle perspective. ISO 14001:2015 does not state specific environmental performance criteria.
ISO 50001 Energy Management System
The international iso 50001 “QMS” is standard established the requirements and guidance and for organization to successfully implement, develop, maintain and continues improvement energy management system. SO 50001 revisions QMS , the standard provides companies internationally recognized guidelines to improve energy balance, reduce CO2 emissions, and lower energy costs by using energy QMS more efficiently “QMS’.
Stages of 50001 certificate:
- Performing an initial assessment and flushing out potential vulnerabilities in the management system.
- GAP QMS analysis is to support you in successfully converting from ISO 50001:2011 to ISO 50001:2018.
- Certification audit : Checking your documentation and practical application of your energy management system QMS.
- Surveillance audits: Annual surveillance of the ongoing optimization of your processes and energy management system QMS
- Re-certification before the end of three years.
ISO 45001 Health Safety
“ISO 45001” :2018 specifies requirement of an occupational health and safety management system, and gives guideline for it’s use, to enable organizations to provide safe and healthy workplace by preventing work-related injury and ill health.
ISO 45001:2018 is applicable to any organization that wishes to establish QMS, implement and maintain an OH&S management system to improve occupational health and safety QMS, eliminate hazards and minimize OH&S risks (including system deficiencies), take advantage of OH&S opportunities, and address OH&S management system non conformities associated with its activities QMS.
ISO 45001:2018 helps an organization to achieve the intended outcomes of its OH&S management system. Consistent with the organization’s OH&S policy, the intended outcomes of an OH&S management system include QMS:
- a) Continual improvement of OH&S performance QMS;
- b) Fulfilment of legal requirements and other requirements QMS;
- c) Achievement of OH&S objectives QMS.
ISO 45001:2018 is applicable to any organization regardless of its size, type and activities. It is applicable to the organization’s control, taking into account factors such as the context in which the organization operates and the needs and expectations of its workers and other interested parties.
ISO 45001:2018 does not state specific criteria for OH&S performance, nor is it prescriptive about the design of an OH&S management system.
ISO 45001:2018 enables an organization, through its OH&S management system, to integrate other aspects of health and safety, such as worker wellness/wellbeing.
ISO 45001:2018 does not address issues such as product safety, property damage or environmental impacts, beyond the risks to workers and other relevant interested parties.
ISO 45001:2018 can be used in whole or in part to systematically improve occupational health and safety management. However, claims of conformity to this document are not acceptable unless all its requirements are incorporated into an organization’s OH&S management system and fulfilled without exclusion.
“ISO 31000, Risk management” – Guidelines, provides principles, a framework and a process for managing risk. It can be used by any organization regardless of its size, activity or sector “QMS’.
“Using ISO 31000 ‘QMS’ can help organizations increase the likelihood of achieving objectives, improve the identification of opportunities and threats and effectively allocate and use resources for risk treatment.”
The standard provides a uniform vocabulary and concepts for discussing risk management. It provides guidelines and principles that can help to undertake a critical review of your organization’s risk management process.
The standard does not provide detailed instructions or requirements on how to manage specific risks, nor any advice related to a specific application domain; it remains at a generic level.
Relative to older standards on risk management, the 31000 standard innovates in several areas:
- it provides a new definition of risk as the effect of uncertainty on the possibility of achieving the organization’s objectives, highlighting the importance of defining objectives before attempting to control risks, and emphasizing the role of uncertainty
- it introduces the (sometimes controversial) notion of risk appetite, or the level of risk which the organization accepts to take on in return for expected value
- it defines a risk management frame work with different organizational procedures, roles and responsibilities in the management of risks
- it outlines a management philosophy where risk management is seen as an integral part of strategic decision-making and the management of change
ISO 27001 Information Security
Complex IT systems are now capable of processing a wealth of information. At the same time, it is becoming more difficult to protect them. With an ISO 27001 certification we provide you with an independent review of the degree of conformity of your information security management system (ISMS) to the requirements of ISO 27001.
“With ISO 27001 we use the globally recognized standard for assessing the security of information and IT environments. It describes the requirements of implementation as well as the documentation of ISMS. Security risks can be minimized and IT security procedures can be established that contribute to the long-term optimization of the quality of your systems”.
Like other ISO management system standards QMS, certification to ISO/IEC 27001 is possible but not obligatory. Some organizations choose to implement the standard in order to benefit from the best practice it contains while others decide they also want to get certified to reassure customers and clients that its recommendations have been followed. ISO does not perform certification QMS.
