Revision of ISO 9001:2008 QMS Standard – Working Draft has 10 clauses

'ISO/TC 176 Sub-committee 2' has issued working draft for ISO 9001 and it contains ten clauses instead of eight as in ISO 9001:2008 QMS Standard.

In short, clauses in the working draft are as under:
1. Scope
2. Normative reference
3. Terms and definitions
4. Context of the organization
5. Leadership
6. Planning
7. Support
8. Operation
9. Performance evaluation
10. Improvement

ISO 9001:2008 QMS Standard contains eight clauses as under:
1. Scope
2. Normative reference
3. Terms and definitions
4. Quality management system
5. Management responsibility
6. Resource management
7. Product realization
8. Measurement, analysis and improvement

Looking to the working draft, we come to a conclusion that there will be too many changes in the forthcoming ISO 9001 QMS Standard. ISO 9000 series had undergone major revision with the arrival of ISO 9000:2000 series in the year 2000 and ISO 9001:2000 certifiable standard contained requirements of quality management system to be implemented by organizations. Thereafter in the year 2008, a revised standard ISO 9001:2008 was issued, but with minor and editorial changes. But this time we will see major revision.

ISO 9001:2015 Working Draft also suggests PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act) methodology. Requirements in clause 4, 5 and 6 related to 'Plan', requirements in clause 7 and 8 relate to 'Do', requirements in clause 9 relate to 'Check' and requirements in clause 10 related to 'Act' of the PDCA methodology.

We will post more articles on ISO 9001 QMS Standard revision.

Please also read my earlier article ‘Revision of ISO 9001:2008 QMS Standard’ posted in this blog on 25 March 2013.
