Things to know

Management System and Compliance Documents

Since 1991 Quality Business Documents has designed and written over 600 Management Systems which are certified to and comply with quality, safety, environment, food safety, information security, health and medical device standards, and with industry and legal requirements.
We are technical writers and produce integrated management systems including policies, manuals, procedures and forms.

Management System Compliance Characteristics

A Management System (MS) is a knowledge repository and training tool. It combines key aspects of an organisation's systems and processes. This allows a business to streamline its operations, save time, and increase efficiency, so that its people can work with common understanding towards unified objectives.

Integrated Management System Characteristics

A well-planned Integrated Management System (IMS) captures all business elements into a single framework, aligning needs, goals, information, risk, opportunity, compliance, communication platforms and resources. KPIs and performance results are informed by consistent, reliable and comparable metrics. A plain-English, accessible, scalable, mapped and modular structure establishes input efficiencies, to achieve quality and conformity of outputs.

Unorganised management systems often operate with separate teams working independently, using different platforms and programs. This leads to issues in communication, knowledge gaps, process duplication, inefficiency, and a lack of common purpose to achieve shared goals.


The benefits of an MS should include increased customer confidence and trust; growth through preferred supplier status and access to customers requiring Certification; improved resilience to internal and external threats; and, increased employee engagement and job satisfaction.

Tailored guidance program

A Guidance Program can deliver a quicker project with lower costs, given that our client can commit to providing sufficient resources for capacity and availability.
This is determined in the Gap Analysis through assessing:
Availability of key staff to participate in knowledge sharing, and editing and completion of draft documents provided by QBDoc.
Levels of familiarity of Standards and compliance requirements held by available staff.
Capacity and availability of people to prioritise the project, fully contribute, provide required inputs, edit content, own the processes and drive the outcomes.
Where a client lacks availability, resources or experience in Standards compliance, a full Build is proposed, with QBDoc typically providing full services including finished documentation, a complete Document Control Register, and a full internal audit and review.

Cost & project variables

Our fees vary depending on your business size, maturity, number of locations, complexity, risk profile, regulatory requirements, and our attendance at external audits.
