Have you ever wondered  why ISO 9001 is so bureaucratic, requiring so many pages of documentation?

This is actually one of the most common misconception about ISO 9001. The new ISO 9001:2015 standard is in draft form (expected to be released next September, 2015), but already there are a number of changes that address such common misconceptions as too much documentation.

ISO 9001:2015 Standard Changes

Now is your chance to hear what changes are coming in the new ISO 9001:2015 standard.  You will learn about the requirement for a quality manual — there is none!  How about quality procedures — None!  quality records — Only to the extent necessary… You define it.  That’s right, ISO 9001:2015 has eliminated many of the hard requirements for documentation and replaced them with the term “documented information”.  The new standard is focused less on documentation and more on performance.

Learn what’s new, what’s been changed, and what’s been eliminated in the coming ISO 9001 Standard.
