The wait is over and ISO has officially published the Final Draft International Standard (FDIS) for ISO 9001:2015, signalling the penultimate stage of the revision process for the world’s most widely adopted international Quality Management System (QMS) standard. The final standard (ISO 9001:2015) is currently due for publication in September 2015.
As well as the incorporation of Annex SL, which is the high level structure and common text for all new and revised ISO management system standards, some of the main new requirements include organizational knowledge, context of the organization and control of outsourcing. Other areas of the standard that have been revised include the importance of leadership, as well as analysis and evaluation along with the planning of changes.
To coincide with the publication of the FDIS, LRQA is pleased to announce that a range of training courses are now available to reflect the new and revised requirements of ISO/FDIS 9001:2015.
