The recently released versions of new ISO standards (both 9001 and 14 001) list the following major changes:
- The standards structure was changed. All management system standards will have the same structure with uniformed sectioning. Creation of a unified structure of management system standards aims at simplification of the integrated systems deployment and utilization.
- New ISO revision focuses on risk management at organizational level, implementing the concept of risk-based thinking. Quality management system includes now identification of risks, establishes a systematic approach to risks and thus should prevent them.
- A new term “context of organization” is introduced. This concept implies a wider scope of quality management system. Nearly every company depends on external factors, such as energy, products, procurement, environment and others. In addition, internal factors (corporate culture, organizational discipline, etc.) have a significant impact on the company itself and quality system operations. All factors that might affect the system and its stability must be taken into account while planning, developing and operating quality system.
In addition to aforementioned changes, many other improvements were made to ISO 9001: 2015 and ISO 14001: 2015.
