Topic: Don’t Let the ISO Boogeyman Scare You! – June 30, 2015

Arm yourself with knowledge about the DIS version of ISO 9001:2015. We’ll take a look at the new ‘Structured Layer’ format and relate it to ISO 14001 (EMS), and ISO 45001 (OHS). You’ll learn about the expanded requirements for Leadership, Risk Management and Change Management.

You’ll leave with an understanding of the broad changes to ISO 9001:2008 and see how the ISO 9001:2015 requirements may (or may not) impact your current management system.

We will demystify this new Standard to give you the confidence to move forward. Take advantage of this latest version of this organizational model and start improving your Management System now!

How to meet the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 with limited resources?

The new version of ISO 9001:2015 will have organizations wondering how they can make the transition with shrinking resources. This session will show you some tips to simplify the transition for your organization so the effort you put in pays dividends. We’ll look at a few ways to meet the new requirements by using what you have and assessing whether you may actually have processes in place right now that will meet the ‘new’ requirements.

In this session, you’ll be able to ask questions about your own situation and what transition can do for you.

We’ll cover:

The ‘Structured Layer’ format

  • how it will make the transition simpler
  • how you can use your current QMS to meet some of the requirements
  • benefits of the Annex SL format

The ‘Risk-based’ approach and ‘Change Management

  • how these requirements will benefit your organization
  • what competencies should be considered
  • training needs for this approach

Simplifying for Implementation

  • build on what you have
  • use this opportunity to streamline documentation and processes
  • make the ‘bites’ match your resources – use the timeline to your advantage
