Revisions to ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 13485, AS9100, TS16949, ISO 9000: Why and How It will Impact Your Organization

In it's 23rd year, ISO 9000 World Conference has become the most important annual gathering in the world bringing together leaders in the field of ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO13485, ISO 9000, AS9100, and QMS Standards. Organizations today must reinvent themselves continually to remain competitive. 

If you are concerned about the changes coming in ISO 9001 and the related Quality Management System (QMS) Standards, come and learn from the people who are working on making the changes and from those who have begun implementing the changes. Determining the right time to make change is critical to not applying resources too soon for fear of having to make additional change or correction down the road. It is important to keep pace with the revision process and consider potential changes in the context of your organization. 

Don't wait until the last minute to learn about these changes. Take the lead and get ahead of your competition on complying with the revision. Many industry-specific QMS Standards are based on ISO 9001 and when the ISO 9001:2015 is published, related industry-specific standards are likely to change. You need to be aware of the impact of the revisions on your business.
