IMPLEMENTING THE 2015 REVISION OF THE ISO 9001 QUALITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
The latest edition of ISO 9001, ISO's flagship quality management systems standard, has just been published. ISO 9001 allows organizations to adapt to a changing world. It enhances an organization’s ability to satisfy its customers and provides a coherent foundation for growth and sustained success. The 2015 edition features important changes and is even less prescriptive than its predecessor, focusing instead on performance. ISO 9001:2015 replaces previous editions and certification bodies will have up to three years to migrate certificates to the new version. Learn all about the new ISO 9001:2015 by downloading our free tipsheet.
