Management systems are the frameworks that companies use to manage the day to day processes involved in running a business.

Many management systems certification standards are known and respected widely around the world. The most well-known ones include:

Gaining and maintaining certification can help your business get better at what it does, lower its costs and win more business.

Why do I need management systems certification?

A well designed management system helps an organisation achieve its aims and objectives.  It gives a systematic, repeatable way of managing the business, its impacts and risks and helps the organisations employees and sub-contractors deliver in line with company expectations.  However, like any business tool, it requires regular check-ups to ensure it is working to its optimal level and is achieving the best possible results.

An external third-party audit provides an annual review of how well the business is performing and helps highlights opportunities to drive further improvement into the business and its processes and procedures.  This feedback helps management set goals and targets and better understand the risks and opportunities the business faces.

In addition, the third-party certification body will provide a certificate that confirms the organisations achievement of compliance with the chosen standards.  These can be used to help win new business or new investment and demonstrate to potential recruits that the organisation is well managed and is focusing on topics that may be important to them.
