While it continues to be relevant to organisations of all sizes and industries, this update builds upon the requirements that have made the standard a success by taking into consideration new technological advancements in the workplace and a higher focus on the quality of outputs to customers.
The standard has been written using a new high-level structure found in all new management systems standards allowing for easy integration with other standards within an organisation’s management system.
The revised standard:
ISO 9001:2015 was published in September 2015. All those currently certified to ISO 9001:2008 will have three years from the release to update to ISO 9001:2015. Intertek recommends all companies to complete the audit process by March 2018 in order to meet this deadline.
