ISO 9001 revisions

ISO 9001 has seen several minor and major revisions since 1987 that addressed a number of issues and changes to the way businesses have evolved since then. In total there have been four minor or major revisions since 1987 including:

  • 1994 – This was the first minor change to the standard
  • 2000 – This was the first of two major revisions to the standard
  • 2008 – This brought a second minor revision
  • 2015 – This was the second major revision and last of the revisions to be made

Each of the revisions listed above was made to correct or make needed changes to the original standard. The changes were important to reflect the way organisations have evolved over the years.

Who should use ISO 9001?

Since most ISO standards are designed to be used by all organisations, and have been created in a way that makes them generic in nature, they are usually flexible enough to be applied across the board to any business regardless of its size, structure or industry sector.

So, regardless of the fact that your business may only employ a few people or there may be several thousand people working there, you can still apply the quality management practices found in the ISO 9001 standard.

Why do companies seek ISO 9001 certification?

There are a number of reasons why a business might want to adopt ISO 9001 for themselves and below is a brief list of them, although not all may apply to every businesses:

  • To implement a tried and tested quality management system within the company
  • Improve customer satisfaction
  • Improve management performance
  • Improve employee performance and engagement
  • Continual overall improvement

Are there ISO 9001 training courses available?

For the company who is new to ISO 9001, there are several options open to them that are designed to help a business get started. These include specialist training courses that help an organisation prepare for and implement an ISO 9001 based QMS in their own organisation. Additionally, these training courses can also be used by organisations that have well established ISO 9001 quality programmes in the place, but are interested in updating them to the current 2015 edition.
