An IMS allows for a more efficient certification audit by a Certification Body (CB) for a business seeking certification to multiple standards (commonly including Quality ISO9001, Safety ISO45001 and Environment ISO14001) as a result, minimising the disruption of the audit whilst allowing for scalability in one framework as your business matures.
