ISO/FDIS 9001:2015 - What are the changes?

The Final Draft of ISO 9001 is expected to be released around the middle of July 2015. This version will encompass all the major changes to the standard. The Final Draft International Standard (FDIS) includes consideration of all the comments received from national member bodies during the draft stage.

With the publication of the Final Draft, it is time to review the requirements and seriously consider your options for transitioning to the ISO 9001:2015.
