Quality Management as a System has a strong obligation with its clients to answer all of their questions.
Today we help our customers, partners and potential clients answer one of the most asked questions we’ve encountered:
Why is the ISO 9001 Standard changing again?
There are a number of reasons as to why this standard is constantly revised. Examples could be: changing technologies, more efficient methodologies to achieve excellence, metholodogies that are not applicable anymore, but today we review 2 of the most critical for the 2015 iteration.
1) The Internal Organization for Standardization (ISO) wanted to simplify the terms used on the standard. This effort is based on the need to aid organizations and teams better understand the accreditation bodies, as well as to promote consistency between accreditation teams, certification teams, auditors and, of course, the organizations who find value in getting better results by implementing the ISO standards.
2) The need to simplify and make the implementation much more efficient. This new revision helps companies and organizations achieve a better level of efficieny, especially if the set of quality procedures and manually is distributed along different certifications, e.g. ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.
If you feel the need for us to help you go into deeper levels of understanding for the new revision, please contact us. We are always happy to provide guidance.
