Overview to ISO 19011, Guidelines for auditing management systems

Management systems help organizations achieve their objectives, and auditing them makes good business sense. The International Standard for auditing management systems has just been updated, giving more guidance than ever before.

Management system standards are growing in popularity as organizations see how they can be applied to manage interrelated processes to achieve their objectives. From quality or energy management to food, information security or traffic safety, the list of standards aimed at helping organizations put in place effective management systems is getting long.

ISO alone has over 80 management system standards, building on international expertise and best practice to help organizations perform better, save money and develop a competitive edge.

In order to get the best out of a management system and ensure continual improvement, regular auditing needs to take place. Not an easy task if, like most organizations, you have several management systems in place.

ISO 19011, Guidelines for auditing management systems, however, offers a uniform, harmonized approach, enabling effective auditing across multiple systems at the same time.
