ABSTRACT

One of the challenges organizations are faced with in implementing a new standard is understanding how to audit or be aware of how others might audit to requirements. For ISO 9001:2015, methods are included in papers developed by the Auditing Practices Group. The APG is a group of experts representing ISO Technical Committee 176, ISO / CASCO, and the International Accreditation Forum (IAF). While these papers are not official interpretations, the intent of these papers is to provide guidance and good practices to all type of auditors of ISO 9001. This presentation will provide the participants with an understanding of the relevance and value of the papers as well as demonstrate how they can be used by organizations of all sizes to provide value to the auditing program.

Another month has passed and we’re all still concerned for the people impacted by the horrible events of the past month. From hurricanes to wildfires, mass shootings to sexual harassment in Hollywood...it’s very frustrating to watch the news these days. Fortunately, we work in a wonderfully people-oriented industry that has demonstrated many times that it’s capable of bringing people up, not letting them fall down.

“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.”
