What are Management System Standards?

There are a number of internationally recognised management system standards including—ISO 9001 for quality assurance, ISO 31000 for risk management, ISO 14001 for environmental management and AS NZS 4801 for occupational health and safety.

These standards provide criteria on which a management system is built. The management system standards outlined below are familiar to most and cover the following areas:

  • ISO 9001 for quality assurance
  • ISO 14001 for environmental management
  • ISO 27001 for information security management
  • ISO 31000 for risk management
  • ISO 17025 for calibration and testing laboratories
  • AS/NZS 4801 or ISO 45001 for occupational health and safety management

Overview of Management System Standards

Each of the ISO management system standards give a definite framework to implement in organisations that can bring positive changes in their processes, employees, productivity, and products/services. Compliancehelp provides compliance services to organisations, helping them to meet every regulation of a standard and attain the ISO certification.

ISO 9001 for Quality Assurance

ISO 9001 is the standard for the quality management system (QMS) and specifies a set of practices that will help your organisation to deliver quality products or services consistently. The QMS ensures that all operations of your businesses are under strict control and supervision so that products/services meet the expected level of quality and satisfy the customers.

ISO 14001 for Environmental Management

ISO 14001 is the standard for the environmental management system (EMS) and specifies regulations and practices for organisations to control their harmful environmental impacts. In short, implementing the EMS standard can help your organisation to become responsible for environmental aspects, reduce waste, use resources sustainably, and comply with environmental legislations.

ISO 27001 for Information Security Management

ISO 27001 is the standard for the information security management system and specifies the policies and practices needed by organisations protect their crucial information from threats or malicious attacks. Data or information are one of the most valuable organisational assets, and hence must be well managed, saved and protected. They include vital financial data, customer information, intellectual property, and partners or employee information. Protecting all this data with an information security management standard is essential to uphold the confidentiality, reputation and integrity of your organisation.

ISO 31000 for Risk Management

ISO 31000 is the standard for the risk management system in businesses, which helps in managing and preventing risks for ensuring business continuity. The standard specifies a framework with best practices to help to identify, analyse, mitigate, control and prevent risks. Implementing this standard can raise your organisation’s potential to reach its goals through risks aversion. A standardised risk management system will help you to assess your processes regularly for risks, analyse root causes and factors, and decide action plans for alleviating them.

ISO 17025 for Calibration and Testing Laboratories

ISO 17025 is the standard for validating the effectiveness of calibration and testing activities. It applies to laboratories or organisations that conduct testing and calibration of products, and guides them on implementation of a quality management system. Achieving the standard will help laboratories to prove their competence in testing and delivering accurate or reliable results.

AS/NZS 4801 or ISO 45001 for Management Occupational Health and Safety

Both AS/NZS 4801 and ISO 45001 standards aim to help organisations in ensuring workers’ safety and health with implementation of a strict regulatory management system. While AS/NZS 4801 is specific for organisations in Australia and New Zealand, ISO 45001 is applicable to organisations worldwide. Achieving either of them will help you to put occupational health and safety (OHS) at the core of your organisational management and can help make employees feel secure and confident. A large benefit for your business with the OHS standard is that it can help boost employee commitment and performance, which can drive your productivity.
