Many management system standards are based on ISO 9001 and when the ISO 9001:2015 is published, others are likely to follow. 

The conference is titled “ISO” but the overall family of standards that are relevant to industry today goes far beyond just the foundational ISO standard.

The TS and AS standards are of great concern to a number of industries, and there are many new standards in effect now that companies can seek certification toward, such as the new ISO 50000 for energy management.  With many companies concerned with sustainability these days… this new standard, along with the ISO 14001 and 18001 standards are still very relevant.
These are some of the topics that will be covered in the technical program:

  • What can we expect in way of changes and impacts.
  • Integration of management systems conforming to more than one MSS
  • Hot technical topics such as risk management
  • Tools you can apply

The FDIS to ISO 9001:2015 will be published in July 2015 with an anticipated publication date in September 2015

Some requirements are new and some requirements appear new, but simply are the same requirement with slightly different wording. Some of the changes are the result of making improvements to ISO 9001, while others are the result of the standardized text required by the ISO directives and Annex SL. Regardless of the rationale for the change, the revision to the standard brings with it some level of anxiety for most organizations.

In some cases, the changes appear larger than they are for the reason of eliminating certain terms. This includes the use of the term management representative. The term management representative is not used in ISO 9001:2015, but if you review the requirements related to responsibilities and authorities in Clause 5, you will see that the responsibilities and authorities are the same without the term. For this reason, organizations should examine what the “shall” requires and not the words alone used to describe.

“ISO 9001 is used by millions of people and organisations around the world and the upcoming 2015 revision will have a big impact on those who work with the standard.

The impact of this revision will be similar to, if not greater than the 2000 edition, which was a major change for accreditation bodies, certification bodies, training organisations, implementing organisations, procurement organisations, consultants and customers.”
