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.”
