ISO 9001 for Quality Management Systems (QMS) is the most fundamental management system standard and allows customers to be confident they can expect the same product or service, time and time again, without variation. Moreover, through the continual improvement process, the product or service can only improve. Well over a million organizations throughout the world across every industry sector have adopted ISO 9001 to achieve uniformity in their business processes.
ISO 27001 for Information Security Management Systems requires organizations to adopt a risk based approach to the security of all information. ISO 27001 is not a prescriptive document, rather it is intended to enable organizations to ensure the security of information through the assessment and treatment of information security risks, documented in a Statement of Applicability.
Aviation, Space and Defense (ASD) industries require ISO 9001 for Quality Management Systems to ensure customers can be confident they receive the same product or service, time and time again, without variation. However, because those sectors involve high cost products which are often mission critical, there are additional requirements for quality and safety to ensure the products and services satisfy exacting specifications. This has resulted in the development of three ASD Standards:
Every day thousands of lives are lost in workplace accidents or as a result of illnesses linked to work activities. The ISO 45001:2018 sets the international standard for Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) Management Systems. It helps organizations proactively manage their OH&S risks and improve their OH&S performance. ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems replaces OHSAS 18001 and AS 4801. If your organization is either OHSAS 18001 or AS 4801 certified, you will need to update to the new ISO 45001 standard.
The ISO 14001 standard sets the international best practice for environmental performance management. It helps organizations create a standardized approach to managing their environmental and sustainability objectives. ISO 14001 is a generic management system standard that can be applied to any business regardless of size, activity, or sector. There are over 300,000 businesses in 171 countries with ISO 14001 certification and growing. Whether you are a small, single-site operator or a multi-national organization, an ISO 14001 certification can offer you a competitive advantage.
ISO 55001 for Asset Management Systems requires organizations to adopt a risk based approach to the management of assets. ISO 55001 is not a prescriptive document, rather it is intended to enable organizations to manage assets effectively through the adoption of a Strategic Asset Management Plan and Asset Management Plans for differing groups or classes of assets.
ISO 22000 for Food Safety Management Systems requires organizations to adopt a risk based approach to food safety. Now based on the same Higher Level Structure that all ISO management system standards follow, ISO 22000 combines the principles of ISO 9001 for quality management systems and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) with internationally accepted, industry based pre-requisite programs. ISO 22000 identifies food safety requirements for organizations within the food and beverage industry chain to address and then implement a food safety management system by identifying, assessing and controlling potential hazards to food safety.
FSSC 22000 for Food Safety Management Systems provides a framework for effectively managing food safety and quality responsibilities. FSSC 22000 demonstrates that a robust and effective food safety management system (FSMS) is in place to meet the requirements of regulators, food business customers and consumers. The FSSC 22000 Scheme is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) and supported by the European Food and Drink Association (CIAA) and the American Groceries Manufacturing Association (GMA).
TQCSI’s Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) Code for Food Safety Programs is based on the guidelines published by CODEX Alimentarius. It specifies food safety requirements for use by organizations within the food and beverage industry to provide objective evidence of their capability to supply food or beverage which meets customer and legislative requirements. It requires organizations to implement the simplest form of food safety management system by identifying potential hazards to food safety, risk assessing them and controlling those deemed critical. In the absence of an international standard for HACCP, TQCSI developed the Code following consultation with food safety specialists and regulators throughout Asia. It has been formally recognized by JAS-ANZ (one of only a handful of codes to be registered by an accreditation body any where in the world).
