Management systems are part of the family of reference standards created to facilitate dialogue between demand and supply, and designed to increase all-round understanding of the customer-supplier relationship. They trace out project management or environmental management guidelines, as well as mapping out the company's core functions and setting out framework documents such as instructions for use, contract templates and so on.
If you look closely, it seems like every business, regardless of its size or business sector, has some kind of management system. All management system standards are international-scope. They are as likely to focus explicitly on quality as they are on road safety or sustainable development.
By gaining control over all the intellectual input and practices that best contour the realities governing management systems, the AFNOR Group is able to offer its customers the sharpest tools for transforming the initiative to standardize a company's management system into a factor driving competitiveness.
