What is Annex SL in relation to ISO 9001, 14001, 45001. It is the document that defines the high-level structure for all ISO
management systems standards. Annex SL is designed to better facilitate the use of
integrated management systems, providing organisations with the tools they need to
streamline current protocol, encourage standardisation and transform existing
management systems into an integrated model.
The common structure, Annex SL, has been introduced in the latest ISO 9001, 14001 and 45001
standard (the replacement of OHSAS 18001). This will make the standards compatible and
enable more effective integration. Aside from the other benefits of consolidation, adopting
integrated management systems now will ease the transition into this model.
