Getting Ready for ISO 9001:2015

The 2015 version of ISO 9001 is still more than a year away from publication, but ISO/TC 176, the technical committee responsible for the standard, has been hard at work on the revision since 2012. Registrants to the current version, ISO 9001:2008, are wondering about changes to the language and intent of the revision, and the committee draft version, out since the middle of last year, offers some clues as to the shape the standard will be taking.

ISO/TS 16949 Pitfalls : Beware of these areas of nonconformance

by Robert Wallace
Even though standards governing quality management systems (QMS) were instituted more than a decade ago, consistent areas of weakness in the application of the automotive process approach still exist. The technical specification ISO/TS 16949--”Quality management systems--Particular requirements for the application of ISO 9001:2000 for automotive production and relevant service part organizations” is based on ISO 9001. This leaves considerable latitude in how an effective and efficient QMS can be achieved.
Despite this freedom of design, examination of the results of dozens of third-party registration and surveillance audit events shows that many organizations fail to address common issues that could be easily remedied.

ISO 9001:2008 Brings More Clarity to QMS Standard

Although the recently released ISO 9001:2008 contains no new requirements compared to the 2000 edition, it does clarify existing requirements of ISO 9001:2000.

Released last November, ISO 9001:2008 is the latest edition of the International Standard used by many automotive companies and other organizations as the framework for their quality management systems (QMS). The ISO 9000 family of standards represents an international consensus on good quality management practices. It consists of standards and guidelines relating to quality management systems and related supporting standards.
