ISO 9001 2015 Revision Update

Waypoint Global, LLC
ISO 9001:2015 Revision Update
Significant changes are comming to ISO 9001 -
Yes, we have them covered!
All relevant ISO 9001 templates will be updated and available to current Service and Support Agreement customers in a timely matter.

Many of our customers are registered to the ISO 9001 Quality management system standard. You may or may not have heard that ISO 9001 – Quality management system – requirements have now been revised. We have been following the process for well over two years now and the revision has just been released.

Organizations will still be able to initially register to ISO 9001:2008 through February 2017. After that time, all registrations will have to be conducted against the 2015 version of the standard. Three years from the publishing of ISO 9001:2015, any existing accredited certifications issued to ISO 9001:2008 shall no longer be valid. There will be a three (3) year transition period in which to adapt to the new standard and get re-registered.

This will be a major revision and significant changes have been made in order to harmonize it with other standards so organizations will find it easier to register to multiple standards. Little, if any, conflicting requirements will result as the adoption of Annex SL which defines the common requirements and structure for many of the common standards such as ISO 14001. Other change highlights include, but are not limited to:

  • A significant restructuring of the requirements and the addition of two (2) new clauses.
  • No longer requires an official Management Representative.
  • Establishes a systematic approach to risk thereby making organizations more proactive rather than reactive.
  • The revised standard does not require a quality policy manual or documented procedures as it has in previous versions. Rather it is up to the organization to determine the "Documented Information" necessary for the efficiency and effectiveness of the quality management system and to have the information available where and when it is needed.

Work has already begun on the development and release of the updated template packs reflecting the requirements of the revised standards.
