IMSIG Governance

About us

Integrated Management is a long established special interest group within the  Chartered Quality Institute. It was believed to have been created around 1995 to advise on 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, it 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 it created the world’s first universal management system standard MSS 1000 facilitating fully integrated management systems without boundaries. IMSIG now has a global CQI and non-CQI membership and is a leading integrated management body.
