In this paper we analyze the situation of Macedonia's companies in terms of implementation and certification of the quality system and the application of different system standards. Analyzing the results of the survey, we have come to the realization of the need for certified quality system in Macedonian companies occurred because of market pressure as the main driving force, but many of them only formally certificate the ISO 90001: 2008 standards. Formal certification of the standards does not create desirable advantages in the market and does not meet the requirements of ISO standards. A particular problem in the Macedonian economy are small and medium companies that do not have sufficient resources to be able to make the system requirements by themselves. The use of the requirements and certification of various standards / systems: quality, environment, health and safety of employees, social responsibility, the safety of food products, etc., requires a new proactive management style and system orientation and reengineering of the business processes. In this paper, based on the results of the survey, we proposes a methodology that will help the Macedonian managers with the design and implementation of integrated management systems.
