In today’s corporate environment, organizations tend to combine a number of management systems, such as quality, environmental and information security. As a result, many organizations now want to harmonize these systems and where possible, combine the auditing process for each of these.

The cost of failing a management systems audit takes many forms. You could face losing valuable contracts, prized certifications or even experience a decline in operational efficiency. That’s why basing your audits on the principles and guidance provided in the revised international standard BS EN ISO 19011:2011 makes sound business sense.

Save money, time and resources by applying a uniform approach to multiple management system audits.

BS EN ISO 19011:2011 provides the fundamental knowledge needed for auditing management systems and has been expanded to reflect modern thinking and the intricacies of auditing multiple management system standards (MSS).

It has been designed to help organizations optimize and facilitate the integration of their management systems and, in facilitating a single audit, streamlines the audit processes whilst reducing the duplication of effort and disruption of multiple units being audited.

This single document provides the critical tools to help you make the right decisions when planning, conductions and evaluating audits. It allows users to:

• Gain a clear explanation of the principles of management systems auditing
• Learn how to conduct and assess internal or external audits
• Obtain guidance on the management of audit programmes
• Reduce paperwork and the need to brief multiple audit teams
• Self-declare in a recognizable way
• Tailor approach appropriately depending on; the size/level of maturity of different management systems
• Streamline the audit management process, from objectives to analysis

By applying the guidelines of BS EN ISO 19011:2011, the standard provides top management with the crucial tools they need to carry out successful audits and achieve the objectives of their organization by minimizing disruption to commercial activities.
