Integrated quality management system

Everything you need to know about integrated quality management systems

What is an integrated quality management system?

The integrated quality management system (IQMS) combines several different management systems into one efficiently managed system. IQMS allows the organization to uniformly manage quality, environmental protection, employee health and safety, information security and other standards, such as ISO 9001 (quality management), ISO 14001 (environmental management), ISO 45001 (employee health and safety management), etc.

Advantages of the integrated system:

  1. Increasing the efficiency of the company's activities: the use of integrated management systems for the organization reduces the duplication of processes, improves the coordination and management of processes.
  2. Cost reduction: Administrative costs related to the maintenance and auditing of separate systems are reduced, as all necessary procedures are integrated into one system.
  3. Risk management: An integrated system helps to better identify, assess and manage various risks related to quality, environment and employee safety.
  4. Increased customer and other stakeholder confidence: Better quality control and more efficient processes enable the organization to provide higher quality products and services, thereby increasing customer satisfaction.
  5. Ensuring Legal Compliance: Integrated systems help ensure that an organization complies with all applicable legal and other requirements related to its operations.
  6. Promoting business sustainability: By integrating aspects of environmental management, an organization can better manage its environmental impact, thereby contributing to sustainable business practices.
  7. Increasing competitive advantage: Certification according to international standards can help an organization stand out in the market, increasing its attractiveness to both existing and potential customers and partners.
  8. Increasing employee engagement and motivation: Clear, well-managed and consistent processes help increase employee job satisfaction and encourage their involvement in the organization.

Stages of IQMS implementation:
