ISO 9001:2015

ISO 9001, the world’s most popular standard for quality management, is now under review, with an updated version due to be available by the end of 2015.

Draft Revision Standard

Over 1.2 million organizations are certified to ISO 9001 and while it continues to be as relevant as ever, the revision will take into consideration a number of issues to ensure it enhances an organization’s ability to consistently provide products that meet customer requirements.

The draft standard has been written using the new high level structure which is common to all new management systems standards. This will allow easy integration when implementing more than one management system. You can now be among the first to explore the changes in detail and familiarize yourself with the first stage of its transformation.

What happens next?

Once ISO has considered the global feedback on the committee draft, they will publish the official Draft Standard for Public Comment (DPC). This is expected in the first half of 2014, with the final revised standard which should be available towards the end of 2015.
