ISO 9001:2015

A great opportunity dawns on us this year in the form of the new revision to ISO 9001 to "change for the better" with effective use of the new standard.

The new standard helps the organisations to focus on internal processes in the background of the marketplace outside.

It is a path breaking standard.


Key changes in ISO 9001:2015

  • 10-clause structure and core text for all Management System Standards (MSS)

  • More compatible with services and non-manufacturing users

  • Clearer understanding of the organization’s context is required “one size doesn’t fit all”

  • Process approach strengthened/ more explicit

  • Concept of preventive action now addressed throughout the standard by risk identification and mitigation

  • The term documented information replaces the terms document and record

  • Control of externally provided products and services replaces purchasing/ outsourcing

  • Increased emphasis on seeking opportunities for improvement.

Organisations that have their QMS certified to ISO 9001:2008 have three years to migrate to the new standard.
