ISO 9001:2015-INSIGHT

The ISO 9001:2015 Standard has been  published in September, 2015. Jack Sekhon & Associates Inc. believe that the structure of the new standard uses a less prescriptive but thought provoking documentation approach. This  enables the organizations to clearly focus on the business intent/purpose, growth, risk strategies, performance measures, outsourced-processes and ultimately the real value-adding continual improvement. In addition, the new standard is better aligned with other industry specific business sector standards such as AS 9100. The ISO 9001:2015 Standard will require a different approach to auditing based upon its business approach model. Some of the highlights of the ISO 9001:2015 Standard include:

  • Clearer emphasis on process approach
  • Introduction of risk-based  thinking
  • Elimination of quality manual requirements
  • Elimination of a management representative
  • Use of  documented information term
  • Still focus on meeting customer requirements/legal obligations
  • Understanding of business context and needs/expectations of interested parties
  • Comprehensive criteria  for establishing scope of QMS
  • Stronger emphasis on leadership and commitment
  • Determination and addressing of risks and opportunities
  •  Formal requirements for a process to achieve quality objectives
  • Introduction of organizational knowledge term
  • Expanded requirements for design and development planning
  • Clearer requirements for design and development changes
  • Comprehensive requirements for outsourced processes
  • New requirements for post-delivery activities
  • Introduction of nonconforming output term

  • New requirements of alignment with strategic plan
  • Use of analysed data as management review inputs
