Masterclass: ISO9001 – the transition from 2008 to 2015
Thu 30 March 2017, 09:00 – 12:00 BST
The latest revision to ISO9001 was published in September 2015 to reflect the ever more complex business environment we have today. Every organisation currently certified to the 2008 version must revise its systems to meet the new requirements by September 2018 to maintain their certificates. To date, many local companies have already successfully made the transition but many more have yet to address the issue.
There will be an introduction to the ‘highlights’ such as: -
- ‘Context of the Organisation’ – who are ‘interested parties’ and what do they want?
- ‘Leadership’ – What does it mean and how can you demonstrate it to an independent auditor?
- ‘Risk Management’ – how do you plan to address them?
- What are the other significant changes?
Who is the masterclass for?
This short masterclass is designed to help companies either renewing their certification or starting the journey for the first time to understand the new revisions and what they may need to do to achieve them.
