There are many common or interfacing requirements between the ISM code and ISO 9001, 14001, 18001 and 50001, therefore any combination of these systems leads to a more efficient way of managing safety, quality, environmental issues, occupational health and safety and Energy Management.
The ISM Code focuses on the safe management and operation of ships and pollution prevention.
The ISO 9001 series is designed to ensure that customer requirements for quality are met.
ISO 14001 provides the elements of an effective environmental management system.
18001 gives requirements for an occupational health and safety management system, to enable an organisation to control its OH&S risks and improve its performance.
ISO 50001 provides a framework to improve and optimise the way energy is managed.
These standards together with the ISM Code are complementary in nature and may be integrated in one management system.
