Our Objective

ISO 44001 with its focus on behaviours and process offer challenges to ensure that it is effectively implemented. This course is aimed at enhancing the capability of auditors to ensure that its benefits are achieved.


ISO 44001 is the first international standard in the world to address collaborative relationship management and the behaviours and culture required for success. ICW has recognised that adoption and implementation of a collaborative relationship standard breaks new ground in terms of management systems and in particular internal auditing approaches. These courses offer a new approach to the process of auditing and reviewing implementation to ensure:

  • Awareness of the contents and background to ISO 44001
  • Understanding why relationships and behaviours are important to successful partnership
  • The correct processes are embedded into "business as usual"
  • The potential benefits of collaborative working are being realised
  • The correct behaviours and competencies, critical to collaborative relationships, are being adopted
  • Continual improvement opportunities in the approach and system are being identified.

By providing those responsible for carrying out the audits with the necessary skills and knowledge to complete them with confidence is crucial in delivering the benefits collaborative working offers.
