Integrated management system

High Level Structure

The High Level Structure - HLS for short - was published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in 2012. The intention was and is to give management system standards a common basic structure and similar core terms. This cross-standard structure is intended to simplify the integration of several management systems into a holistic system.

What is a High Level Structure?

Environmental management in an integrated management system

The ISO 14001 standard for environmental management underwent its last major revision in 2015 - and has been a member of the High Level Structure (HLS) since then. Today, IS0 14001 is the preferred choice for many growing organizations when it comes to adding another standard to ISO 9001 for quality management and merging it into an Integrated Management System (IMS).

Energy Management in the Integrated Management System

ISO 50001 for energy management open many doors in the direction of climate management,  especially in combination with the environmental standard ISO 14001. For example, an integrated management system based on both standards provides considerable preparatory work for the preparation and verification of a greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory on the basis of existing data that has already been collected.

Implementation of an integrated management system

Today, the planning and implementation of an Integrated Management System is primarily due to the need for holistic corporate management. An integrated management system enables the diverse requirements of topic-specific standards such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 27001, ISO 45001 and ISO 50001 to be met. This requires a holistic view and consistent process orientation.

Planning phase, deployment phase and improvement phase - these are the three central steps in the introduction of an integrated management system. All those responsible for managing the system must be closely involved in each phase. This is the only way to ensure that goals are set and the system is further developed with foresight. The main benefits are greater efficiency and transparency in the organization.
