The new ISO 9001 standard

I have been asked several times recently about the proposed changes to the ISO 9001: 2008 standard, and so, in response I will post a series of communications that summarise these changes so that you are aware of what is coming and potentially, the plans you need to be making.

For now though, the key changes in the proposed standard for ISO 9001: 2015, based on the Draft International Standard, published in May 2014, are:

  • The emphasis on leadership
  • The focus on risk management
  • Emphasis on objectives, measurement and change
  • Communication and awareness
  • Fewer prescriptive requirements.

Keep an eye on my blog for more detailed information soon.
