ISO 9001:2008 to ISO 9001:2015 QMS Transition Training Course

  • Course Duration: 1 day


The much awaited ISO 9001:2015 was issued on 23 September 2015. It has a new structure and several significant new requirements. Organisations will find some of the key changes challenging. However, if understood and implemented well, the new standard should prove highly beneficial to organisational performance and to business sustainability.

This course comprises a series of interactive tutorials and workshops which describes the changes specified in the ISO 9001:2015. It explains the reasons for them and considers their likely impact on QMS design, implementation, auditing and certification.

  • Quality practitioners who will need to understand the new ISO 9001:2015 requirements.
