On 1 October 2015 the substantially revised and updated ISO Standard, ISO 9001:2015 was published. Businesses who are ISO 9001 certified now have up to 3 years to transition from ISO9001:2008 to the new ISO9001:2015.
There are a few major changes on emphasis within the Standard, for example, Leadership, Planning and Risk Management within the business.
Reproduced below is a summary of the Principal Changes, provided by the Chartered Quality Institute within their ISO9001:2015 Report, along with a summary of the changes businesses do not need to make too.
FIA’s Compliance Manager, Kevin Stearns is available to talk to about the changes and can offer a consultancy service to help member companies with the transition to the new standard. Please contact Kevin at firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 3166 5002.
