Highlights of ISO 9001:2015
The current version is ISO 9001:2015. This new version takes account of the increasing complexity of the environment within which organisations have to work and also focus more strongly on the special features and needs of service providers. Also a new High Level Structure will create greater harmony between ISO 9001 and other management system standards.Further, the responsibility and autonomy of organisations will be much more strongly emphasised; the same applies to the importance of the process approach and handling of risks. This standard continues to be the only non sector specific certification standard for quality management systems and maintains its most important quality objectives, such as customer satisfaction and generation of compliant products and services.
