Conference Chair’s Message

The 2017 ISO 9000 WORLD CONFERENCE will continue its longstanding tradition of providing relevant topics with leading experts in their respective fields during this year’s conference.

To date, less than 10 percent of the organizations who are currently certified to ISO 9001 have completed the transition to the 2015 version. It is unknown whether the reluctance to transition comes from a fear of the unknown or a timing issue with the certification of the organization. The conference has been focused with this current statistic in mind.

This year’s conference is certain to provide the knowledge organizations need to proceed with their transition to ISO 9001:2015. A combination of workshops, case studies from organizations who have completed the transition, and sessions on specific requirements of ISO 9001 from experienced quality professionals and standards experts are sure to provide those needed insights. The conference also will continue its focus on networking where attendees get the opportunity to interact with fellow quality professionals and the speakers.

Sector specific standards will also be part of this year’s conference program. In-depth sessions on ISO 13485, AS9100, and IATF 16949. Industry experts will explain the changes with timely and relevant information that attendees can use to complete their transition for these standards as well.

No conference is complete without tools to enhance the management system. Risk-based thinking continues to be a topic of discussion. Sessions have been planned to present a variety of perspectives on this topic. Presentations on auditing will also provide tools on how to add value to the organization.

The goal of the ISO 9000 WORLD CONFERENCE has always been to offer conference attendees an experience that provides value. The 2017 ISO 9000 WORLD CONFERENCE will continue this time honored tradition.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to learn and network at the leading conference on ISO 9000 and related Management System Standards.

We look forward to seeing you in Nashville!

Warm Regards,

Lorri Hunt, Chair, 2017 ISO 9000 World Conference; Lead U.S. Delegate to ISO TC176/SC2

“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.”

An excerpt from IRCA Resources on “ISO 9001: IRCA Supporting the 2015 Revision”, October 2013
