ISO 19011:2012 Guidelines for auditing management systems. Compared to the first edition of the standard published in 2002, the scope of standard has been expanded to reflect current thinking and the complexities of auditing multiple management system standards. It aims to optimise and facilitate the integration of management systems and in facilitating a single audit will streamline the audit process, reduce duplication of effort and decrease disruption of work units being audited. (NB replaces ISO 14010:1996 Guidelines for environmental auditing - General principles; ISO 14011:1996 Guidelines for environmental auditing - Audit procedures - Auditing of environmental management systems; ISO 14012:1996 Guidelines for environmental auditing - Qualification criteria for environmental auditors; and, ISO 19011:2002 Guidelines for quality and/or environmental management systems auditing.)
