What is High-Level Structure?


The architectural structure of interface design. The high-level structure is easily visualized with a diagram of the entire design, all its pages, and their interrelationships. HLS (High-Level Framework for Management System Standards) is a general framework for standards on management systems.

The High-Level Structure or HLS is a set of 10 clauses as below:

  • Scope
  • Normative references
  • Terms and definitions
  • Terms and definitions
  • Context of the organization
  • Leadership
  • Planning
  • Support
  • Operation
  • Performance evaluation
  • Improvement

This is so that all management system standards will have a uniform look and feel, and will enable greater integration between systems from different disciplines.

The High-Level Structure ensures that future management system standards will support each other. They will be easier to read and understand, and they will aid greatly in the integration of multiple standards within one organization

HLS is the name of a common structure that the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has established for all ISO standards that set requirements for management systems. The structure has already been implemented in several standards, e.g. ISO 9001 and ISO 1400
