The study was based on the problem of the poor understanding and application of the requirements of the integrated management system of the company, as well as the weak performance of audits. The study was also conceived in response to the fact that there were few studies and research papers on the subject of the integrated management system audit. The study adopted a case study method, which consisted of observations, interviews, fieldwork, and the use of verification checklists. The study community and the sample were composed of some of the divisions of the company. Moreover, certain methods were adopted to treat the data quantitatively and interpret the results in light of the results of the verification lists using equations to obtain the percentage of the extent of conformity. The objective of the study was to determine the status of the implementation of the integrated management system by systematically validating it in a sound manner according to the standard guidelines (ISO 19011:2018). The results of the study revealed a gap between the actual company situation and the requirements of the integrated management system of the company, as well as those of international standards (ISO9001:2015,ISO14001:2015,ISO45001:2018). The operational item ranked first in the size of the gap. We recommend strengthening the company work related to determining the requirements and expectations of the parties dealing with it and internal and external issues. This is in order to contribute to developing and planning the integrated management system of the company effectively.
