How to prepare for the new ISO 9001 revision

Posted in ISO 9001 2015

The new revision is available for purchase.  Typically organizations often
  1. underestimate the resources necessary to develop and implement a quality management system
  2. assume that only a small number of people are needed to understand the application of quality management principles and how to effective implement them
The new ISO 9001 standard aligns with high-level organizational structure, requiring all new ISO management system standards to be aligned on that structure. There is more of an emphasis on risk-based thinking for the QMS and a focus on achieving value for the company and customers.  It does offer more flexibility for documentation, and a better structure for service organizations.
