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.

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.

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.
