What is PAS 99?
PAS 99:2012 is a Publicly Available Specification for integrating common management systems. These systems are all designed to improve the way businesses are run and many now have a similar structure. PAS 99 highlights these common elements and outlines a framework to integrate them. These requirements include auditing procedures, document control, risk management and improving performance. Use this specification to integrate management systems, run operations effectively and meet all regulatory requirements.
How does it work?
PAS 99:2012 outlines ways to integrate common requirements of your management systems standards. This gives you an improved overview of your business, which helps you to manage risk. Integrate your management systems with PAS 99 and you will reduce any conflict between different management frameworks and increase efficiency. You can also use the specification to meet internal and external audit requirements. PAS 99 gives guidance on planning, implementing and operating an integrated management framework, as well as monitoring and improving performance.
