What is ISO 44001:2017 CBMS?

ISO 44001:2017 is the International Standard for Collaborative Working. ISO 44001 is a roadmap for establishing and managing collaborative relationships with suppliers (upstream), customers (downstream), partners (horizontal), and inter-department or function (internal) in order to generate benefits for all parties.

ISO 44001  is about driving organizational mindset and culture toward collaboration, rather than being a document focussed on delivering contractual obligations.

ISO 44001 involves a structured approach to sharing resources, experience, and skills supported by a method for creating, delivering, and exiting relationships. Certification to this standard demonstrates that your business relationships are truly collaborative.

This is the latest version of the collaborative business relationship management system standard. It allows any type or size of business to implement a management system that will help it to work with other businesses in a more efficient way but it also applies those benefits to individual projects or organisation-wide initiatives.

From your first consultation with the QMS International experts through to certification can take as little as 45 days. However, this does depend on the size and complexity of your business.

Remember, we can normally save you time and effort by drafting your Collaborative Business Relationship manual for you. This can also help you gain certification faster than you would by doing it yourself.
