The latest edition of ISO 9001 standard was published in September, 2015. The new ISO 9001:2015 standard is a collaboration of over three years of revision work by experts from nearly 95 participating and observing countries to bring the standard up to date with modern needs.
With over 1.1 million certificates issued worldwide, ISO 9001 helps organizations demonstrate to customers that they can offer products and services of consistently good quality.
The 2015 edition features important changes where it is less prescriptive and focusing instead on performance. The standard now combines the process approach with risk-based thinking, and employing performance improvement cycles at all levels in the organization.
