To become certified to management system standards such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001, it is essential to develop a comprehensive and effective documentation system. Organizations that already have a certified management system (e.g. ISO 9001) may wish to expand this to meet the requirements of additional standards (e.g. ISO 14001).  Deciding where these sorts of systems overlap is important to minimizing documentation and avoiding duplication.

The structure of ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018 is based on Annex SL format and terminology. Annex SL was developed to ensure that all ISO management system standards share a common format irrespective of the specific discipline to which they relate.

Annex SL prescribes a high-level structure, identical core text, and common terms and core definitions as follows:

  • Clause 1 Scope
  • Clause 2 Normative references
  • Clause 3 Terms and definitions
  • Clause 4 Context of the organisation
  • Clause 5 Leadership and worker participation
  • Clause 6 Planning
  • Clause 7 Support
  • Clause 8 Operation
  • Clause 9 Performance evaluation
  • Clause 10 Improvement

This one-day course will be of interest to companies who are at an early stage of developing a management system (quality, environmental and/or health & safety) and who wish to identify the documentation requirements and develop an action plan to get started.  This course aims to provide learners with an understanding of the documentation requirements of these standards and how these can apply to their organisation.
