The new standard (ISO 9001:2015) was published on 23 September 2015. Organizations that are currently registered to ISO 9001:2008 will have until September 2018 to transition to the 2015 standard.
The 2015 revision represents a major change in quality management practices. ISO 9001:2015 introduces a number of new requirements and concepts such as, context of the organisation, leadership (i.e now requires leadership to step up, and takes quality processes right to the boardroom), risk based thinking, change management, people engagement and knowledge management, just to mention a few.
