Management systems standards

Today, most companies have to some degree systematized management and administration of the company. Many use a management system as a point of departure for such systematization.

Systemize your management style

The management system covers all topics that top management should respond to and helps create a system for how top management should manage the company. Many company managers experience peace of mind when implementing a management system because they are confident that matters that might otherwise get out of hand are under control.

For many supply companies in Denmark, it has become a common requirement for them to document their quality, environmental conduct, work environment, energy supply, food safety, etc. In other words, to prove that such matters are well-managed and preferably through a certified management system.

Implementing management systems

A management system establishes a business overview of your company. It creates a solid foundation for deciding how to continually improve and develop your company.

Management systems can be implemented in various ways depending partly on the individual company’s needs, objectives, production, services and culture and partly on the strategic direction for products, performances, markets and customers.

The individual standards for management systems are generic, meaning they are not developed having a specific company in mind. Hence, the individual standard does not provide a final answer to how a management system fits the individual company. However, various factors can help a company implement a more holistic system with focus on management and relevant business processes for the focus area in question.

What is a certification?

And what does it take to be certified? And why get certified? These are some of the questions asked by many when they hear about certification and standards.

Auditing management systems

ISO 19011 Internal audit is a generic guide for auditing management systems. The standard provides guidance on how to structure, implement and report an audit programme.
