ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems RevisionISO 9001, the world's leading quality management standard, is under revision, with an updated version (ISO 9001:2015) due by the end of 2015. The International Organisation for Standardization (ISO) has planned this way to give a uniform structure to all management standards. Therefore, the chapters of all norms for Management Systems will be organised with the same chapters, and terms and meanings will be adapted in order to standardize the language used. This will bring to a simplification of the integration of all the management systems in an organisation. The new structure has no influence on the description of the quality management system, but the new requirements are stronger process-oriented and more emphasis is given to a risk based approach.
Organisations already ISO 9001:2008 certified are granted a three-year transition period after the revision has been published to migrate their quality management system to the new edition of the standard.
