What is ISO 9001:2015?
ISO 9001:2015 is a universally recognised quality management system. It involves considering what happens in your business, putting a quality management system into operation around it (not as many people believe, the other way round), and supporting and improving that system continually.
The new 2015 Standard places a greater emphasis on risk-based thinking, moving away from the classical corrective/preventive action approach. It also requires a greater commitment from top management than previous versions - looking for leadership in how the quality policy is implemented and communicated.
A little bit of history
Traditional views of quality assurance methods have produced a negative legacy which ISO 9001:2015 seeks to address by its newly simple, proactive, and adaptable approach.
Its popularity has been promoted by its use as a supply chain management tool by many large industries, who quickly saw the cost benefits of requiring suppliers to be independently audited and certified to ISO 9001, rather than maintaining their own staff to carry this out.
The ISO 9000 standard is continually being revised by standing technical committees and advisory groups, who receive feedback from those professionals who are implementing the standard.
ISO 9001:2015 can be seen by some as a rubber stamp where minimal compliance is sought, rather than as a means to facilitate the move to a continual improvement ethos within an organisation.
We at ISO 9001 Consultant aim to work alongside our clients, enabling them to make the journey at their own pace from mere compliance to enhanced performance.
