ISO 9001 Revision 2015
Moving From ISO 9001:2008 To ISO 9001:2015
As explained here, ISO 9001 has been revised. In 2015 a new version was introduced replacing all previous versions. There have been some significant changes to the standard. These include:
- greater emphasis on leadership engagement
- focus on risks and opportunities facing an organisation
- simplified structure and common terms making it easier for companies following multiple management system standards
What does this mean for you?
Companies who hold ISO 9001:2008 certification have until September 2018 to update their systems and processes to take account of the new requirements of the standard. You should be discussing with your certification body when you should transition to the new standard in line with your surveillance visits.
