Planes, Veins, and Automobiles. The impact of ISO 9001:2015 on AS9100, ISO 13485 and TS 16949

The standards AS9100 (Aerospace), ISO 13485 (Medical devices) and TS 16949 (Automotive) are all directly based on ISO 9001:2008 and explicitly refer to its clauses. The publication of ISO 9001:2015 has introduced questions and created dialogue about the impact this newly revised standard will have on the other standards.

Will the AS 9100, ISO 13485 and TS16949 Standards align with ISO 9001:2015, and follow the new High Level Structure (Annex SL)? Or will they take a different route and develop their own framework, parting company with ISO 9001 and Annex SL?

Respective Industry and regulatory committees are currently reviewing AS9100, ISO 13485 and TS 16949 to make decisions about the transition of these standards: Certified companies must plan effectively to ensure their management systems continue to meet these Standards' requirements until the situation is clarified.

What this webinar will cover:

We will outline the current situation with AS9100, ISO 13485 and TS 16949, and clarify what is happening and what is not happening.

We will provide you with the information you need to know regarding your specific standard and what you need to do to ensure conformance going forward.

We will provide timelines for certified clients so you are well prepared for your transition journey.

Our panel of specialists will be able to answer any questions or concerns you have about ISO 9001:2015 and its impact on your management system.
