Annex SL has now become the International framework for Standards.
Annex SL is a guideline for writing standards for management systems.
Annex SL, developed by the ISO (International Organisation for Standardisation) provides the framework for your new ISO Management System (MSS) or to revise an existing ISO-MS.
All new ISO management standards will follow this framework and the old ones will be revised to this new framework. It provides an ideal template to structure an effective Integrated Management System (IMS).
Who is it relevant to?
Integrated management is suitable for any organisation, regardless of size or sector, looking to integrate two or more of their management systems into one cohesive system with a holistic set of documentation, policies, procedures, and processes. It allows you to align your processes and procedures into one simple structure that enables you to run your business more effectively.
Which popular standards are based on the Annex SL structure?
A typical integrated management system might include:
- Quality ISO 9001
- Environment ISO 14001
- Occupational Health and Safety ISO 45001
- Information Security ISO 27001
- Business Continuity Management ISO 22301
This list is not finite, and the range of standards incorporated into the integrated management system may vary. By using the simple IMS Business Solutions created system you can cut the BS and KISS the Standards!
