PAS 99 Integration

Integrated management system is already an inalienable part of modern commercial sphere; it makes it possible to organize clearly administration of your firm, all production stages and guarantees great benefits without unnecessary financial costs. IMS is based on three main regulatory documents: PAS 99, ND No. 006.00-134 and GOST R 53893-2010. It should still be clarified that the main document is PAS 99, since the rest are founded on it.

If an enterprise has an IMS certificate of conformity, this indicates that all the above requirements for the environment, production, employees, etc., are met. In addition, if an IMS Certificate is available, an organization has the right to mark its products with a special sign, applying it to the packaging.

Essence of PAS 99

PAS 99 (Publicly Available Specification – Open Specification) summarizes IMS requirements and is the basis for combining two or more standards as one complex. PAS 99 “Generally Available Specifications” was designed in 2006 by British Standards Institute and was intended for use by those organizations that meet demands of two or more standards. Adoption of this PAS greatly simplifies the enforcement of integrated systems standards as well as the conformity assessment process. What is important, certification is not issued directly for PAS 99 itself.

With joint certification, audited sites (branches) are checked selectively: partly during certification and partly during surveillance audits. Combined certification is used for several management systems in organizations.  Certain standards elements have been restructured to facilitate integration. Top-level structure, which is adopted in many new acts, consists of the following components:

  • normative reference;
  • concepts and definitions;
  • the context of the company;
  • leadership;
  • planning;
  • support service;
  • operations;
  • efficiency mark.
