ISO 9001:2015 IS HERE – WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?


The 2015 edition has now replaced the 2008 version; although it should be noted that existing certification to the 2008 version is still valid. We have a team of experienced consultants, trainers and auditors who can work with you and your team to assist with the transition. Every organisation is different,


so the steps needed to adjust your management system are likely to be equally unique to your situation. However, here are some tips that will help you get started on the journey. • Tip 1 – Familiarise yourself with the new document. While some things have indeed changed, many remain the same. A correlation matrix is available; ISO/TC 176/SC 2 will help you identify which parts of the 2008 standard have been moved to other sections in 2015. The most noticeable change to the standard is its new structure. ISO 9001:2015 now follows the same overall structure as other ISO management system standards. The idea is to make it easier for anyone using multiple management systems.


• Tip 2 – Identify any organisational gaps which need to be addressed to meet the new requirements.


• Tip 3 – Develop an implementation plan. • Tip 4 – Provide appropriate training and awareness for all parties that have an impact on the effectiveness of the quality management system. If you are currently certified to ISO 9001:2008 and you wish to maintain your certification to ISO 9001, you will need to upgrade your quality management system to the new edition of the standard and seek certification to it. You have a three-year transition period from the date of publication of the 2015 version to transition to it. This means that, after the end of September 2018, a certificate to ISO 9001:2008 will no longer be valid. The dates for our transition courses,


for organisations and auditors, are detailed on our website at www. qmi-scotland.co.uk or give us a call on 01224 626290 to discuss what we can do to help you or your organisation with a smooth transition to 2015.
