ABOUT TH ECONFERENCE

  • ISO 9000 World Conference is the first, and the longest running conference on ISO 9000 & Related Standards.

  • With 50+speakers, and hands-on workshops, the 2016 conference is definitely the must-attend event for every Quality Management Professional.
  • The transition to ISO 9001:2015 is getting started, and other key management system standards are undergoing their own revisions. It is time for all organizations to start their work to achieve conformity. At this conference top experts in the world will show you the way to success with the new standards.
  • This unique international event brings together leaders in the field of ISO 9000 and QMS Standards. If you are concerned about the changes in ISO 9001 and the related Quality Management System Standards (QMS), come and learn from the people who are working on making the changes and from those who have begun implementing the changes.

Don’t Wait: Hidden Hurdles to ISO 9001:2015 Transition

All ISO 9001:2008 certifications will expire on September 22, 2018, which means organizations must have registered to ISO 9001:2015 by that date. The effective deadline for ISO 9001:2015 implementation is, however, much earlier because of two prerequisites for the registration audit: (1) an internal audit to the new standard and (2) a management review. The organization will also need objective evidence of how it implements other new provisions including actions to address risks and opportunities, and retention and accessibility of organizational knowledge.

The takeaway is that the organization will need time to not only modify its quality management system to meet the new requirements—and this is not a major task for an organization with an effective ISO 9001:2008 system—but also to exercise the system and demonstrate its effectiveness. An early start will therefore ensure that the organization can meet the September 2018 deadline with plenty of time to spare.

“ISO 9001 is used by millions of people and organisations around the world and the upcoming 2015 revision will have a big impact on those who work with the standard.

The impact of this revision will be similar to, if not greater than the 2000 edition, which was a major change for accreditation bodies, certification bodies, training organisations, implementing organisations, procurement organisations, consultants and customers.”

An excerpt from IRCA Resources on “ISO 9001: IRCA Supporting the 2015 Revision”, October 2013
