Getting Ready for ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Systems

getreadyforISO9001-2015

The new ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System is slated to be approved for publishing later this fall. The new Standard for quality will follow a new, higher level structure to make it easier to use in conjunction with other management system standards, with increased importance given to managing and mitigating risk. According to the International Organization for Standardization, if your organization is certified to ISO 9001:2008, you are granted a three-year transition period after the revision has been published to migrate your quality management system to the new edition of the Standard.

Indeed, ISO 9001:2008 is one of the most well-known ISO standards and Quality Management Systems worldwide. Like ISO 9001:2008, all requirements of the new ISO 9001:2015 Standard are generic and are intended to be applicable to all organizations, regardless of type and size to help companies demonstrate that they can offer their customers consistent, good quality products and, or services. Also, ISO 9001:2015 provides a framework to help them streamline their processes and become more efficient at what they do through enhanced communications.
