Rethinking Integrated Management Systems

The future of Integrated Management Systems, and why we're suspending IMS courses.

With revisions to three key management systems Standards coming into effect this year and next, we’re looking ahead to the future of Integrated Management Systems (IMS).

Forthcoming updates to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 (becoming an fully fledged international Standard next year - ISO 45001) will have a major effect on IMS training materials, causing regular need for content change as the Standards are rolled out.

We have therefore suspended our current IMS courses and will focus on each area individually, revisiting our IMS provision after the new Standards are in place within the framework of Annex SL. We believe Annex SL will naturally supersede PAS 99, on which the three Standards have been pinned in recent years to enable an integrated auditing approach.
