ISO 9001 is the most popular Quality Management Standard with a global acceptance. It has helped a large number of clients in achieving efficiency, process control, and enhanced performance. The quality standards and procedures are comprehensive and universal. However, there has been a need felt to revise and update them with respect to change in the environment. It is the reason for the release of the latest version ISO 9001:2015 on 23rd September 2015.
FDIS 9001:2015 came last year. After consolidating alterations and comments made by experts worldwide, the final draft was issued at the beginning of 2015 and standard was published in September 2015. ISO is a global benchmark. Therefore, industries worldwide are looking forward to upgrade to the proposed version.
Revision of QMS Standard is necessary to keep it relevant and applicable to the current business environment. Organizations should upgrade to keep pace with the modern world.
