September 15, 2018 is the deadline set by ANAB (accreditation body) for ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 organizations to transition to the 2015 version of these two standards. This means the transition audit must be completed including return/approval of NCs and a new 2015 certificate issued.
ASR clients are encouraged to transition to ISO 9001:2015 and/or ISO 14001:2015 at their recertification audit if possible. Clients that transition at recertification will not incur additional audit time. Clients may elect to transition at a surveillance audit or at a special audit at any time during the audit cycle. However, additional audit time may be required to cover the review of changes to the client’s quality management system. The additional time is dependent on the size of the organization.
If your organization has not scheduled its transition to the 2015 version of ISO 9001 or ISO 14001, please contact ASR today!
ASR is available to answer questions regarding the transition process or interpretations of these revised standards.
