ISO 9001 and the Supply Chain

ISO/DIS 9001:2015 calls for a greater understanding of the context of the organization and the relevant internal and external issues that may impact the intended outcomes or the quality of products or services.

In the revised version, risk has also come to the forefront of the discussion. When paired with the demand for a greater understanding of the context of the organization, risk-based thinking now must extend throughout the supply chain.

In Clause 8.4 of ISO/DIS 9001:2015, it states that “The organization is required to take a risk-based approach to determine the type and extent of controls appropriate to particular external providers and externally provided products and services.”

Transitioning to ISO 9001:2015 will require developing a greater understanding of various stakeholders, including suppliers. Join us as we discuss the new requirements of ISO 9001 as outlined in the DIS and the latest information from the technical committee.

At this webinar, we will:

  • Review risk-based thinking and its application in the organization
  • Provide insight into understanding of Clause 4. Context of the Organization
  • Outline the impact the revision may have on supply chains
