ISO 9001:2015 QUALITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
PREPARING FOR THE CHANGE – ISO 9001:2008 to ISO 9001:2015 Transition
If you are certified to ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems and wish to maintain your certification, you will need to upgrade your Quality Management System to the new revised ISO 9001:2015 standard and seek certification to it. You have a three-year transition period from the date of publication on September 2015. This means that, the transition to the revised version of ISO 9001:2015 must be completed within September 15, 2018.
- New structure: ISO 9001:2015 adopts a High-Level Structure specified in ISO Annex SL making it easier for organisations integrating different management systems. Other latest ISO management system standards all follow the same structure.
- Understanding the context of the Organisation
- Focus on risk-based thinking
- Process approach
- Greater emphasis on leadership
- Strategic Planning
The standard is revised to meet the needs of today’s changing business world. It is the right time for the organizations to embrace the change and transit to the newly revised standards.
