What is Sapira-IMS?

A whole business approach to meeting the specifications of the common management system requirements for PAS99:2006. The latest Quality Management Standard BS EN ISO9001:2000 and Environmental Standard BS EN ISO14001:2004 have been created to take into consideration an integrated approach which has allowed us to develop a management system backbone.

Plan, Do, Check, Act the buzzwords of the Deming, Shewhart PDCA approach. This still has merit in process improvement but it lacks in outputs and leaves a lot for you still to do. This is where the content and process of Sapira-IMS with its document suite of templates and most importantly, our knowhow, will help you to put the pieces of the jigsaw together.


We can't deliver on our promise unless we understand your organisation. We always prefer to undertake a scoping audit for you before starting on the main project. This ensures that before you commit we all understand what resources will be required.

Scoping audits take a few days and are based on a fixed price with clearly defined outputs.


Common Elements

Once the high level processes have been established, the next steps involve the rationalisation of existing management systems. Extracting the common elements, which become the backbone of all your future management processes, we then start to help you integrate the specific elements which are required to meet certification and compliance. Whilst this particularly relevant to ISO standards such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 these can just as well include other market standards or specifications required for compliance.

Sapira-IMS Elements and The Sapira-IMS Arch

Defining the scope of your management system using Sapira-IMS methodology which complies with the PAS99 approach will create a framework which we will then use to build a single management system for you.

Building an integrated management system is very much like building an arch. Starting with our framework the various elements of the system are built around the IMS template.

The "Key Stone" of the whole process however is the way in which the integrated management system is implanted within the organization effectively holding all of the other management systems together.
