What Does The New Quality Management Standard (ISO9001:2015) Bring?

The Quality management system standard was updated in 2015. The current version of ISO 9001:2008 is being replaced by the version of ISO 9001:2015.

Organizations have to find answers to some questions at this stage. What the new standard brings, its differences from the old one, its application method and certainly its benefits.

ISO 9001:2008 version will remain valid until the end of 2017 in line with the publications of the Turkish Accreditation Agency. As of January 1, 2018, the 2008 version standards will no longer be valid, even if the certificate period has not expired.

Organizations that have the 2008 version or will receive a new certificate must fulfill the requirements of the 2015 version before the deadline and complete the certification process properly.

What does the ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System standard bring? ISO (International Standardization Organization), which introduced process logic and helped corporate development with the ISO 9001:2000 version, brought 2 basic innovations with this version. These; It is a standard setup and risk management in accordance with Annex SL.

Within the framework of the standard structure in line with Annex SL, “high level structure”, “same basic text”, “common terms” and “basic definitions” were included in this version of the standard. Thus, this change, which started with the ISO 27001:2013 Information Security Management System, was also implemented in the ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System. Thanks to this structure, organizations that want to apply different standards simultaneously (integratedly) will have the advantage of establishing a more effective integrated management system with less resource usage.

Another important issue to consider with the new structure is the concept of risk management. This approach includes the risks that organizations are exposed to due to internal and external issues that affect them; It requires identification, evaluation and appropriate measures to be taken.
