Preparing for ISO 9001:2015
3. Encourage using a single integrated
management system

Whats new in ISO 9001?

ISO 9001 received a significant
revision for 2015
The most significant changes have to
do with how the system is
implemented rather than specific
ISO 9001 is the most popular ISO
standard utilized worldwide, with about
1.14M certifications each year. This
represents over 70% of all ISO
certifications, so when ISO makes a
change to 9001, the effect is felt
In its latest revision, the most significant
changes are directed to how ISO expects
companies to implement ISO 9001 and
integrate it into their other systems.

The 3 changes that matter most

1. Move to Risk Based Thinking
Identifying and assessing risk is nothing
new to ISO 9001, or most other
management systems for that matter.
They all require you to identify the risks
that can impact quality (for instance), and
put in place controls to mitigate that risk.
The key difference now is that ISO is
seeking to move organizations to a more
systematic way of thinking about risk.
This means that risk is incorporated into
how every control is developed, and not
all risks are controlled in the same way.
This has deep implications into everything
from the design of the controls to how
they system is governed, and can lead to
significant cost reduction if correctly

2. Emphasis on Leadership
ISO is not alone in this trend. Lack of
leadership commitment often tops the
list of reasons why initiatives like ISO fail,
so it is no surprise to see ISO and other
organizations integrate it into their
Unfortunately, many will misinterpret this
as leadership support. Support can only
go so far, and further emphasizes the
mentality that the management system
applies to all except management.
Leadership commitment to the system is
ultimately shown in the culture that they
establish through their actions and what
actions they reward or discourage.
The solution is to take a proactive
approach to managing culture, and
integrating the desired culture with the
management system in a cohesive way.

One of the most significant changes to

ISO 9001 is the elimination of a
requirement to have a quality manual.
This change is part of a broader shift from
having multiple, discrete systems for each
desired result to a realization that a more
effective approach is to have a single
integrated system. ISO now encourages a
Process Approach, which further
supports utilizing a single integrated
system of processes.
The WP&C 7-Element OEMS is designed
in anticipation of this shift and can meet
the requirements for all ISO standards
under one single system.
