    The Long Awaited ISO 9001:2015 Is Here And What It Means For ICT 

    The countdown is officially over.  The newly revised ISO 9001:2015 is status: PUBLISHED!  Over the past few years there have been many who thought we might not arrive at this moment, but it’s finally here.

    The revised standard went into effect on September 21, 2015, as well as the new ISO 14001:2015.  While there are many new concepts to grasp, you have 3 years to comply with the new requirements.

    Below is an informative and quick overview video from ISO.org that condenses some of the concepts that have changed and that we’ve all been blogging about such as “process approach” and “risk based thinking”:

     

     

    Please note that while you have 3 years to meet the new requirements, we do NOT recommend waiting until the last minute to update your QMS or EMS.  Certifying bodies will be overwhelmed and some are saying they will not accept ISO 9001:2008 after mid-2017.

    Education however is something you can do right away, which is why we’re offering complimentary courses on both ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 in November.  Click on the image below or our countdown page for class descriptions.

    TL 9000 R6.0, Does ISO 9001:2015 Play A Role And What Does It Mean For ICT Quality?

     

    If you are certified to TL 9000, it is our recommendation to hold tight until TL 9000 R6.0 is released, which is scheduled for September of 2016.

    Once R6.0 is completed, then the transition will be easier for both standards to take place at once.  The timeline to meet the new requirements for TL 9000 will match with the ISO 9001:2015 timeline, so you will have plenty of time to complete both upgrades more efficiently.

    In the coming months BIZPHYX will be helping clients map out their transition plans for ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015.  For clients, we’re offering discounted packages to help you transition your quality and environmental management systems in the most cost effective way possible.

    How ISO Develops Quality Standards: 5 Stages Of Development (Video) 

    When we first got notice of this video, we didn’t know if we should laugh– or gasp.  The development of ISO standard is certainly a complicated process and probably worthy of distillation for the masses—but sock puppets, with names?  We couldn’t help but share ISO’s recent video on how world quality standards are developed.  While it’s a tongue and cheek video with actual sock puppets, the host does a very good job of breaking it all down and clearly defines the 5 stages of quality standards development.  Learn (and laugh)…

     

     

    Seriously….here are the 5 stages of development:

     

    1. New Work Item Proposal (NWIP) Stage

    2. The Working Document (WD) Stage

    3. The Committee Draft  (CD) Stage

    4. The Draft International Standard (DIS) Stage

    5. Final Draft International Standard (FDIS) Stage

     

    For a detailed explanation of the various stages, click the image link below to go to ISO’s documentation page:

     

    5 Stages Of Quality Standards Development
