The Final Draft International Standard (FDIS) of ISO 9001:2015 has been published. The FDIS will help you identify what you need to do to get your quality management system aligned to the 2015 version. This is the final stage on the revision journey and means you can be confident that the information contained in the FDIS will be in line with the final version, which will be published in September.

The new 2015 revision is a significant update to the standard, and it’s a great opportunity to make your organization even more effective. The key new areas covered in the standard are:

  • Greater emphasis on building a management system suited to each organization’s particular needs
  • A requirement that those at the top of an organization be involved and accountable, aligning quality with wider business strategy
  • Risk-based thinking throughout the standard makes the whole management system a preventive tool and encourages continuous improvement
  • Less prescriptive requirements for documentation: the organization can now decide what documented information it needs and in what format
  • Alignment with other key management system standards through the use of a common structure and core text

With a comprehensive suite of services and support material, IQC can help you embed this new management system into your organization, so you can start to see the results as quickly as possible.

The next steps to moving ISO 9001:2015 to the Final Draft International Standard (FDIS) stage were completed in a meeting in Vilnius, Lithuania, the week of February 16, 2015. The meeting served as a continuation of the meeting conducted in November 2015 at Galway, Ireland. The working group experts met in plenary to establish consensus on the work that was previously completed.

Technical comments that were not submitted as comments on the Draft International Standard were not considered. The experts did consider output from a recent validation activity that reviewed user feedback on potential concerns with the revised ISO 9001:2015 standard. As a result of the meeting, the working group experts completed their consideration of comments and have completed their work. The completed work now begins the process of the ballot.

The draft of ISO 9001:2015 will be reviewed by the secretary of ISO TC 176/SC2 who will forward the work to the ISO Central Secretariat (ISO CS). From here, the ISO CS will edit the document and prepare it for the ballot. The established timeline indicates that the ballot will be distributed to participating members (countries) of ISO TC 176 sometime in July. The ballot on the ISO 9001:2015 FDIS is a “Yes-No” ballot. No technical comments will be accepted on “yes” votes. Negative votes require rationale. However, changes based on this rationale will not be made.

Because of this process, users of ISO 9001:2015 can be assured that when the FDIS is published, they can begin their implementation efforts in earnest. Upon conclusion of a successful FDIS ballot, the ISO 9001:2015 standard will be published in September 2015.
