Changes introduced in the 2015 revision are intended to ensure that ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 continue to adapt to the changing environments in which organizations operate. All organizations certified to ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 were granted a three-year grace period from September 2015.
intu-it’s ISO GAPs self-analysis tool provides a platform that allows your organization to identify its standards gaps before an ISO audit. With this tool, most of the work is done before the auditor even sets foot through the door. Saving your organization time and money!
intu-it’s GAPs self-analysis tool is a platform that organizations can log into. On the platform the organization will be lead through a series of questions. Once these questions are answered, the answers will be collected into a detailed report, highlighting major problem areas that would ordinarily get flagged in an ISO audit. This allows your organization to solve these problems before an audit even starts and ensures the easy and methodical verification of each aspect of the audit.
ISO 9001:2015 incorporates more business management terminology and concepts. It is much less prescriptive, and leaves it up to the organization to evaluate its own needs.
This standard is written for the benefit of organizations, not auditors. Auditors will be engaging in dialogue with business leaders, seeking comprehension and ensuring that policy, strategy and quality objectives are compatible.
The audit experience from the client perspective could be very different. Systems should be updated to benefit the user, not the author.
ISO 14001:2015 incorporates more business management terminology and concepts, which ensures that systems will be integrated into the organization’s overall business processes rather than being separate entities.
The changes will require effort from organizations to implement, however the overall result will be a more effective management system capable of achieving better results in environmental performance.
