Standard history

An organization exists to satisfy the needs and expectations of their interested parties. This is achieved through the presence of a management system. This Handbook uses the definition of a management system as being a set of interrelated or interacting elements of an organization to establish policies and objectives, and processes to achieve those objectives. Organizations have differing operating models with varying levels of complexity. Based on this complexity, the scope of the management system may apply to a sub‐set of an organization or the entire organization. When integrating multiple standards into the management system it is important to consider the scope of that management system. The foundational principle of a management system is an understanding of the context in which an organization operates. An organization gains this understanding by examining its external issues and internal issues that determine their success and sustainability.
