BS 11000 Collaborative Business Relationships

BS 11000-1 was introduced in 2010 to provide a framework for organisations of any size, in any sector, to establish and improve collaborative relationships within their supply chain.

The standard sets out a strategic framework specification to allow establishment and improvement of collaborative business relationships.

The framework is written to allow organisations of any size, and from any sector, to implement the system in a way that best helps their business, based on an eight stage approach.

Implementing a BS 11000-certificated Collaborative Business Relationships Management System should be of particular interest to organisations wanting to improve efficiency and partnership working; particularly those within or managing a supply chain.

BS 11000-1 is currently under review by the International Organisation for Standardization and is expected to become ISO 11000 at the end of 2016. Currently at the Committee Draft 2 Stage (CD2), BS 11000 is still in the early stages of the review process which standards such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 are under.
