ISO 9001:2015 & ISO 14001:2015 Upgrade and Transition Training

Is your firm currently certified under ISO 9001:2008 and/or ISO 14001:2003?

Are you wondering what will happen with ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015?

There are some very significant and important changes heading your way…


Since 2012, all ISO management system standards have been in the process of being updated against the new 10-clause High Level Structure (HLS).


The ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards are undergoing radical transformation, raising questions and concerns over their new structures, revised documentation requirements, and a variety of other changes needed to comply with the new and improved standards.


The ISO 9001:2015 Standard will be released in September 2015.


ISO 14001:2015 will be released in August 2015.


In addition to the new structures, there are other sweeping changes.


The new ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 emphasize risk-based thinking beyond that seen in earlier versions.


The ISO 9001:2015 Draft International Standard (DIS) was released in May 2014 and the target is now fairly well-defined.


Quality Resource Center offers practical, hands-on, 1 and 2 -day courses in developing your strategy for making a seamless transition to the new requirements; Available at our world class training center, on-site at your facility, or via the internet in our popular webinar based system.


Pre-Requisite: Participants should be knowledgeable of the ISO 9001:2008 QMS standard.


Who Should Attend?


Any interested party involved in ISO 9001:2015 or ISO 14001:2015 quality and/or environmental management system implementation or upgrade.


Course Description:


Attendees to this important course should include, but not be limited, to all personnel within the organization, especially Top Management; such that they may all understand how to successfully implement the upcoming changes in the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards.


The new approaches, outlined in the drafts, represent a dramatic turn in direction. There are new demands on management. Risk Analysis now takes center stage and must be considered throughout the organization. Specific documentation is no longer mandatory, but remains conspicuously implied.


Quality Resource Center is uniquely positioned to lead you through the twists and turns of these important revisions and the effects they may have on your business. Our seasoned team of experts has experience that dates back to the original 1994 standard, the 2000 revision, and the 2008 revision.


Join us as we map out the latest versions of the revisions to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. Quality Resource Center will provide the tools and techniques to help you understand the spirit and letter of the new revisions. With QRC, you can rise above the confusion and see how to prepare your team for management-led, risk-based thinking that can best position your organization.


These workshops will navigate you through the maze of changes and give you the latest information available from the technical committees to help you adopt this new approach.
