Integration of an Environmental Management System with other Management Systems

An organisation may choose to integrate the key environmental management elements with other existing management systems, e.g., quality management system to the ISO 9001:2008 standard or occupational health and safety management system to the BS OHSAS 18001:2007, in order to improve these systems and increase their efficiency and effectiveness.

The decision to integrate the ISO 14001:2004 with the elements of the established management system should be based on the needs specific to the organisation.
