With an ability to adopt the dynamic business environment, ISO is relevant and useful for small, medium and large enterprises. The new version is welcomed by the whole world positively and everybody are looking forward to it with curiosity and excitement in equal measures. The update is going to impact organizations that are already certified, certification bodies, companies under ISO 9001 implementation process and ISO certification consultants. A transition period of 3 years is given to all the organizations certified to ISO 9001:2008. However, the current version will phase out eventually. ISO 9001:2015 has been drafted to last at least for a decade without any change.
The proposed version would has a higher-level structure (Annx SL) that gels along well with other standards of management. The biggest change happens in the documentation process. Audio and Video formats will also be acceptable along with the existing formats. However, there is no dilution in the audit process and organizations are supposed to preserve all formats of documentation for a predefined period.
