We are proud to announce that we have the 9001:2008 certification now successfully for over 3 years on a row. The new certificate can be found here. The next step will be the transition to 9001:2015.
With the new 9001:2015 coming now, here a quick overview of what the new requirements are. (source Wikipedia)
ISO 9001:2008 Quality management systems
— Requirements for the transition to 9001:2015 is a document of approximately 30 pages which is available from the national standards organisation in each country.
Essentially the layout of the standard is like the previous ISO 9001:2008 standard in that it follows the Plan, Do, Check, Act cycle in a process based approach, but is now further encouraging this to have risk based thinking. The standard no longer specifies that the organization shall issue and maintain documented procedures, however ISO 9001:2015 requires the organization to document any other procedures required for its effective operation. The standard also requires the organization to issue and communicate a documented quality policy, a Quality Manual (which may or may not include documented procedures) and numerous records, as specified throughout the standard. New for the 2015 release is a requirement for an organization to assess risks and opportunities (section 6.1) and to determine internal and external issues relevant to its purpose and strategic direction (section 4.1) Interpretations of how the standards requirements are a matter for the organization to demonstrate, and an external auditor to determine, the effectiveness of a quality management system. Further detail, interpretation and examples of implementation are often sought by organizations seeking more information in what can be seen as a very technical area.
