Management Systems

Dickson Environmental Consulting and Audit can assist your organisation in developing stand-alone or integrated management systems to suit your internal requirements and meet the requirements of the international / national standards.

We do not use "off-the-shelf" documentation, but assess your organisation's individual requirements, and build a system that will suit the culture, structure and complexity of your organisation and the nature of your activities. We aim to build systems that are compliant, flexible, simple to use and help you achieve your triple bottom line.

2015 was a landmark year in terms of management system standards. The environmental standard ISO 14001 was revised, and there have been significant changes including adopting the high-level structure of revised ISO 9001, enhanced requirements for leadership and to understand the needs and expectations of interested parties amongst many other changes. We have a detailed understanding of the implications of the changes and can help you meet the new requirements while enhancing the effectiveness of your systems.

2018 is set to be another landmark year with the release of the international safety standard ISO 45001. It adopts the same high-level structure as 9001 and 14001 and we can help your business to more fully integrate your management systems, now that they are all aligned to the same structure.
