ISO/FDIS 9001:2015 Released
FDIS = Final Draft International Standard
We are glad to inform our readers that ISO/FDIS 9001:2015 has been issued by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the revision of ISO 9001 QMS standard has now reached the final stage.
Around 90% members approved the earlier released ISO/DIS 9001, however over 3,000 comments with suggestions on possible improvements were received by the committee responsible for revision. The ISO committee responsible for ISO 9001 revision has met twice, in Ireland and Lithuania, and also carried out extensive online discussions to analyze and decide on every comment received during the vote on ISO/DIS 9001. Now ISO/FDIS 9001:2015 has been issued on 09 July 2015 and ISO members will proceed with a national consultation before submitting their final vote on ISO/FDIS 9001:2015. ISO members have 2 months time to form their national position and vote the latest draft of the standard (ISO/FDIS 9001:2015) before 9 September 2015 deadline.
Compared to ISO/DIS 9001, changes in ISO/FDIS 9001:2015 are relatively minor. The terms and definitions have now been removed from the standard and these will now be part of ISO 9000. Some of the explanatory text has been moved to an informative Annex.
If you wish to read ISO/FDIS 9001:2015, you should contact national standards body in your country who is the member of ISO. In India Bureau of Indian Standards is the national standards body, who is the member of ISO.
More information in forthcoming posts.
