What's the difference between Type A and Type B MSS?

Type A MSS contain requirements against which an organization can claim conformance, whereas Type B MSS do not. 

As a consequence, one should only find recommendations (guidelines) or supporting information in a Type B MSS. Some MSS can contain a mix of requirements and guidelines: as they contain requirements they will be considered Type A MSS. Usually a Type B MSS (e.g. ISO 50004:2014) provides guidance on the application of a Type A MSS (e.g. ISO 50001:2011). However, some Type B MSS are independent (e.g. ISO 19600:2014).

High Level Structure - HLS

Standards listed here as HLS have the same structure  [PDF] and contain many of the same terms and definitions. This is particularly useful for those organizations that choose to operate a single (sometimes called “integrated”) management system that can meet the requirements of two or more management system standards simultaneously.

To claim conformance with a standard, an organization needs evidence that it is meeting the requirements. Such evidence gathering is generally done by undertaking an audit. There are three types of audits: first-party, second-party, and third-party. First-party audits are internal audits. Second and third party audits are external audits. A third party audit can result in certification. Regarding certification: certification can only take place against a document that contains requirements. Therefore, Type B MSS cannot be certified against.
