What is an integrated management system?

An integrated business management system focuses on competitive advantage, employing common processes to efficiently manage and optimize performance.

This three-day seminar focuses on the integration of the standards. The intent is not to teach the “shalls” of each standard, but rather to understand how the requirements and clauses are integrated and their impact on audit systems and the auditing process. Other topics include audit systems, the auditing process and auditing instruments; the documentation process; conducting an audit; writing an audit report, and taking corrective action.

The seminar is built around a case study, which includes the integrated approach. Also included are case studies to develop skills for identifying nonconformities.

Omnex is an Exemplar Global Certified TPECS provider for Exemplar Global-AU Competency Units. Attendees who successfully pass the exams during this course will achieve a Certificate of Attainment for the following competency units:

Note: As the intention of this course is to focus on how the standards integrate and not the requirements of the standards, a competency unit in a specific management system standard is not offered.
