This year will also be a year of transitions for management systems:
ISO 27001 reached its transition deadline in September 2015 and consequently any company not transitioning to the 2013 version will have been automatically de-registered.
ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System does have a transition deadline of September 2018 but most holders of 9001 will transition this year or latest 2017. Our clients will transition on a time scale best suited to them and with our help.
ISO 14001 :2015 Environmental Management system also has a transition deadline of September 2018 but most holders of 14001 will transition this year or latest 2017. Our clients will transition on a time scale best suited to them and with our help.
OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health and Safety system is planned to be released as ISO 45001: 2016 this year and as with the other new standards will probably have a three year transition period.
There are a number of Standards which have ISO 9001 as core requirements and these are planned to be released this year. The ones which are relevant to Quality Matters are:
- AS 90100, AS 9102 & AS 9001 Aerospace and Defence Standards
- TS 16949 Automotive Standard
- ISO 13485 Medical Devices Standard
- ATEX Explosive Atmospheres Standard
Readers of our blog will know that all new standards will follow the annex SL format with 10 identical clauses which will allow easy integration.
