By Lorri Hunt, Chair, ISO 9000 World Conference; Lead U.S. Delegate to ISO TC176/SC2; President, Lorri Hunt & Associates, Inc.

With the publication of ISO 9001:2015, organizations now face the next steps of implementing, learning to audit, and transition to a new certification. This workshop will blend these different concepts so that organizations not only will learn how to understand the requirements so they can be implemented, but how to audit to the requirements when there is no specific documented information requirement.

The workshop will include:
  • Tips on how to conduct gap analysis
  • Tools for developing plans for managing the transition
  • Clause-by-clause review of ISO 9001:2015
  • Information on how to implement and audit ISO 9001:2015
  • How to determine when documented information is needed
  • How to audit when minimal documentation is available
This workshop is structured to provide the needed information for an organization to transition with confidence.
