ISO 9001:2008 - What will change?

31/10/08

 

ISO 9001, like all ISO standards, is subject to periodic review to determine whetherit is still relevant or needs to be updated and adapted to the environment.  Typically, an ISO standard is reviewed every 5-6 years, and the current version was issued in 2000.  ISO 9001:2000 is due for an update this year.  It has now been issued as a final draft international standard (FDIS) and is likely to be published in autumn 2008.

 

The revisions in 2000 were major, and all interested parties in the revision process agreed the next ones would be minor. A major revision of ISO 9001 is therefore expected to occur in 2013. Hence, the proposed changes to this revision are more a clarification of points already in the standard rather than the inclusion of new requirements. Changes have also been made to be consistent with the current ISO 14001 revision (2004).

 

What does this mean for you, if you are already ISO 9001:2000 certified?

 

There will be little impact on your audits, as the changes to the standard are very minor. This new revision will of course replaces ISO 9001:2000 but each organisation will be given two years after its publication to make any upgrades.  There will not be any disruption to your organisation and our audit teams will guide you through the process and upgrade your certification during audits to make sure all changed items have no impact or have been clarified with your organisation during the audits.

 

IS0 9001 Certification, still a strong driver for improvement

 

20 years after its first publication, ISO 9001 continues to be a valued standard. Not only does ISO 9001 certification show your organisation’s commitment to quality, but it also acts as a benchmark to measure your company’s progress in its drive toward improving business performance and the internal processes
