ISO Management System Standards
Why ISO Required
ISO management system standards (MSS) help organizations improve their performance by specifying repeatable steps that organizations consciously implement to achieve their goals and objectives, and to create an organizational culture that reflexively engages in a continuous cycle of self-evaluation, correction and improvement of operations and processes through heightened employee awareness and management leadership and commitment.
The benefits of an effective management system to an organization include
More efficient use of resources and improved financial performance
Improved risk management and protection of people and the environment
Increased capability to deliver consistent and improved services and products, thereby increasing value to customers and all other stakeholders.
