ISO 9001 was first published in 1987 by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), an international agency composed of the national standards bodies of more than 160 countries. The current version of ISO 9001 was released in September 2015 and has some significant changes. The attached are Transition Planning Guidance for ISO 9001:2015 from International Accreditation Forum and an article “Keep Calm and Prepare for ISO 9001:2015” co-authored by International Conference on Quality Standards keynote speaker, Paul Palmes, provides a basic analysis and maps out five key changes included in ISO 9001:2015 to help make sense of what they mean, what your organization must do to meet the new requirements, and resources available to help you navigate the transition.
