Where an organisation is registered, or is seeking registration, to more than one Standard it may be possible to address these within one integrated Management System.
Some of the most widely implemented standards (e.g. ISO9001, ISO14001, OHSAS18001) certainly lend themselves to this type of system, as many of the requirements are the same. So the common elements such as Document Control, Management Review, Auditing and setting Objectives could cover all the relevant standards, as could procedures for areas such as Purchasing, Training and so on. It is also possible to write one integrated Management Policy which would meet all the requirements.
