ISO 9001:2015

The ISO 9001:2015 quality management systems will be published earlier this year. The purpose of the revision includes:

— The growth of service businesses and their needs for quality

— Recognition of the need to harmonize, integrate quality
management into overall business management systems, perhaps
to serve as the basis of business management itself

— Making it easier for companies to adopt multiple ISO series general
business management standards such as ISO 14001
(environmental) and/or vertical standards such as AS9100

— Helping to simplify the understanding of the standard, and make it
easier (and more mandatory) to apply it more uniformly
