Organizations certified to ISO 9001, the leading international standard for designing and implementing a quality management system, must make the full transition from ISO 9001:2008 to the revised ISO 9001:2015 standard by September 2018. As the three-year timeframe for transitioning to ISO 9001:2015 enters its final year, ABS Quality Evaluations (ABS QE) has developed a toolkit providing ISO 9001 guidance and information resources to facilitate a smooth transition process to the 2015 revision. In order to maintain compliance with the International Organization for Standardization's quality management standard, we recommend preparing for the transition to ISO 9001:2015 now.
Known for providing expert accredited management systems certification services that drive increased efficiency, profitability, safety and customer focus, ABS QE has been assisting organizations with transitioning to the latest ISO 9001 standard through a recurring webinar series and training seminars. Our archived ISO 9001:2015 webinar recording and presentation are included as part of our toolkit.
If you are with an organization currently certified to ISO 9001:2008 or one considering certification to the newer standard, we will help you understand the ISO 9001:2015 standard requirements. Our assessors have compiled expert insights into the history and future of ISO 9001 and frequently asked questions and answers related to the approaching change in September 2018.
