I attended your webinar, How To Integrate ISO 14001 and 9001 and have a question. I am in a company that has ISO 14001 and wants to implement 9001. The existing procedures for management review and corrective action do not align between the two. For example, MR would be two different audiences because of the differing scopes of the two standards – one covers the entire company, the other (9001), only covers a segment of the company. Corrective action for 14001 does not include all of the requirements necessary to comply to 9001. How do I handle this? Two separate procedures and forms – one for EHS, one for manufacturing? Seems like this type of integration of management systems would occur frequently so I’m hoping you have some advice for me.
Even if there are some differences there are many similarities, for instance the cotext of the organization, the policies, etc. The approach is different but you can cover at the same time and this means that you will save time and documentation. In addition you will need just to perform and organize a single meeting instead of 2, so my recomendation is to have a single MR for the integration of the standards adding the specific requirements of ISO 9001.
