ISO 9001:2015 Update

While You Wait for ISO 9001:2015.....

As mentioned in a previous article, a major revision to ISO 9001 is the replacement of prevention action in favor of risk. There is NO requirement for standardize risk management, however each organization will need to identify and act upon risks to their operation.
Organizations might take this opportunity while waiting for release of 2015 to begin addressing risk or the "effect of uncertainty on expected results." In the 2015 revision of ISO 9001, risk is addressed as risk to your business, product(s) that the organization manufactures or distributes, and customer satisfaction.

Risk is generally thought as a negative, but risk-based thinking may help to identify positive opportunities. Organizations might consider risk to the strategic direction of the operation, external risk to customers and interested parties, internal risk to processes and products.
Some of the personnel responsible for risk include:

Risk Based Thinking – And ISO 9001:2015

Tuesday, 15 September 2015
ASR Editor

ISO/FDIS 9001:2015

With the release of the 2015 revision, it is important to revisit one of the major changes to the standard – developing risk based thinking.

ISO 9001:2015 moves risk based thinking from a "should" or a good idea to enhance a QMS to a "shall" requirement. Both ISO 13485:2003 and AS9100 require users to address risk in Section 7 of their respective standards.

A good way to look at risk and to address risk is by utilizing the PDCA cycle - Plan, Do, Check and Act.

Standards Revision: ISO 9001:2015

ASR Editor
Dear ASR clients:

The new ISO 9001:2015 standard was published on September 15, 2015 (available 9/23/2015)
Required timing for client transition: No later than September 15, 2018

American Systems Registrar (ASR) plans to begin conducting audits to ISO 9001:2015 in January of 2016.

ASR will be recommending clients to transition to ISO 9001:2015 at their recertification audit if possible. Clients that transition at recertification time will not incur additional audit time. Clients may choose to transition at a surveillance audit or at a special audit at any time during the audit cycle. Additional audit time will be required to cover the review of changes to the quality management system. The additional time would be dependent on the size of the organization.

Determining Adequate 2015 Documentation

Wednesday, 29 July 2015
Rand Winters
Revision writers left it up to organizations determine how many and what procedures and work instructions to document. This vague approach to documentation opens the door for each organization to develop a system that reflects what works best for them.

Final voting on the 2015 revisions concludes in September and there may be some slight language changes.

Two types of documented information (ISO 9001:2015 4.4.2) are required. Organizations will have to maintain documented information (procedures and work instructions) and they will have to retain documented (records) information.

Addressing the Context of an Organization

Tuesday, 15 September 2015
ASR Editor
Central to maintaining a business is an understanding of the organization, its context as well as the needs and expectations of interested parties. Context could be expressed in an organization's existing vision, mission, policy or objectives.

Determining relevant internal and external issues is followed by the monitoring of those issues to achieve the intended results of the organization's business system. See ISO 9001:2015 or the ISO 14001:2015 for reference.

Take a look at your "Context of the Organization" and find opportunities for improvement.
