Revision of ISO 9001:2008 QMS Standard – ISO has issued Committee Draft for ISO 9001:2015



A new version of ISO 9001 QMS Standard is expected to be published in 2015 as ISO 9001:2015. International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has released ISO/CD 9001 on 3 June 2013 and thus ISO 9001 revision reaches Committee Draft stage. In accordance with the approved project plan for the revision of ISO 9001 QMS Standard, Secretariat of ISO/TC 176/TC 2 has sent the committee draft of ISO 9001 to its members. The same has been circulated to members for commenting and ballot. The last date for submission of comments and votes is 10 September 2013. It is expected that next meeting of ISO/TC 176 will be held in November and work for developing ISO/DIS 9001 will start. It is expected that ISO/DIS 9001 will be circulated to members by April 2014. ISO/FDIS is expected to be released around July 2015 and publication of ISO 9001:2015 QMS Standard is expected by the end of 2015.

If you wish to get a copy of ISO/CD 9001, you may get it from the sales counter of International Organization for Standardization (ISO) for which you should visit http://www.iso.org/iso/home/store/catalogue_tc/catalogue_detail.htm?csnumber=62085.
