Revision of ISO 9001 – From ISO 9001:2008 to ISO 9001:2015

In today’s world, change is the only constant. ISO standards are not an exception either. The ISO has recognized the need to keep standards up-to-date to help stay relevant to the modern technology, concepts and practices prevalent in the marketplace and keep pace with the changes in the global economy.

To guide organizations in adapting to the growing customer needs, the ISO 9001 has undergone revision from the 2008 version to the 2015 version which was published in September 2015.

What are the key changes to find in the new ISO 9001:2015 standard?

  • The new ISO 9001 version has a common higher level structure and text with the intent to make integration with other management system standards easier.
  • The new version gives more importance to risk.The new versionemphasizes on a risk-based approach. Risk will be integral to the entire quality management system. Preventive action from ISO 9001:2008 has been replaced by risk management and planning.
  • ISO 9001 Documentation: The requirements of the new version are less prescriptive. For instance, instead of the explicit need for traditional documentation like a quality manual, it suggests for a more flexible documented information. However, this will not imply that organizations who currently have a quality manual need to change or discard. It is only that the flexibility of documentation is increased,where relevant information can be retained and can be made available when needed. This makes it more flexible for service-related organizations.
  • The new concept of Context of the Organization requires that the organization while determining its environment should not only consider  customers, employees and suppliers, but also those who get affected by their operations for instance the communities in which they operate or may have significant influence.
