IMC Governance

About us

The Integrated Management Community was established in August 2020 following the mothballing of its predecessor, the CQI Integrated Management Special Interest Group (IMSIG).   IMSIG was believed to have been created around 1995 to advise on simultaneously complying with the new standard ISO 14001 for environmental management systems and the existing ISO 9001 for quality management systems. However, early in the new millennium, IMSIG broadened its perspective to address the management of the totality of an organisation’s functionality to optimise stakeholder satisfaction while making the best use of resources. This involved focusing on the theory and the application of integrated management in its widest sense and also integrated management systems which have now become mainstream thinking.


In 2014 IMSIG created the world’s first universal management system standard MSS 1000 facilitating fully integrated management systems without boundaries. Prior to being mothballed IMSIG became the largest CQI SIG with a global CQI and non-CQI membership and a global leader in facilitating integrated management.
