Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

This has been a very busy year for us with many clients transitioning to the revised Standards ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015.  The transition work has meant that a rethink was required for both Standards.  These are now risk based and new documented information (previously quality and environmental manuals) were needed to make the transition easy for clients.

Clients not yet transitioned must do so before September 2018  or they will automatically be deregistered.  UKAS have stated that there will be no exemptions to this rule and no extensions will be granted.  The transition by your Certification Body must have been completed by the drop dead date and of course any non-conformities must be cleared and accepted by the CB.   The Certification Body will expect to see that the revised Standard(s) have been in use for some time before transition as clearly; they can only assess what you have been doing and not what you intend to do. 

In addition, the revised Aerospace, Space and Defence Standards AS9100, AS9110 and AS9120  have been published recently with a transition period expiring on 14 September 2018; this is a tight timescale and we will work with our clients to ensure a timely transition is made.

This will be our final blog for 2016. Our offices will be closed from midday on Tuesday 22 December and will reopen on 3rd January 2017. Our email will be monitored but may take longer for us to respond during this period.

We wish our Clients and readers of our blog a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and prosperous New Year.

2016 year end and onwards to 2017
