The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) released a major review of its ISO 9001 standard. This review includes a series of important changes for both organizations that already have this certification and those looking to develop and implement a quality management system (QMS).
In light of the changes expected, many questions have come up:
How long will ISO 9001: 2008 continue to be recognized and audited?
What is the implementation schedule for ISO 9001: 2015?
How are the organizations that currently hold ISO 9001 certification affected by changes?
My integrated system also includes ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001. Will changes to ISO 9001 affect my system?
