Management review is a systematic, formal, frequent assessment done by an organization's top managers to measure the organization's management systems' effectiveness.
The purpose of the management review meeting is to evaluate the effectiveness of your management systems and identify any potential risks or opportunities for further actions. By conducting management reviews, you will ensure that all managers are going to be aware of the organisation status, changes, risks and opportunities. Management review intends to identify potential risks and calibrate managers' knowledge with each other to ensure everyone is on the same page. Note that there are differences between management meetings and management reviews. The management meetings may incorporate day-to-day matters such as sales issues, project status, resources issues, etc. Whereas management review focuses on the requirements of the management systems.
A management system is defined as the way an organisation manages the interrelated parts of its business to achieve its objectives. ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 45001, NDIS or etc can be addressed as a management system that an organisation uses to achieve its goals.

The quality and accuracy of data are essential in helping businesses evaluate their status. Validating the accuracy of data, records, clarity, and details of data is necessary to mitigate any adverse impacts on the managers' strategic decisions. Without validating data, you run the risk of basing decisions on invalid data that are not representative of the organisation's status.
Documenting the content and outcomes of the management meetings is an essential part of the review process. You can record the time, record your voice or video record the sessions. In all the above scenarios, you should have a documented action plan to plan and address potential outcomes and mitigate any adverse events that may impact the organisations integrity.
The NDIS or HSEQ Management Systems standards have not been set in any timeframe to conduct the management reviews. Therefore, it is left to the organizations to establish their timeframe. It is recommended that the management review meetings should occur at least once a year; however, they can be held more frequently if required.
