The ISO international standards for management systems are regularly revised to adapt to the new needs of organizations, the changing challenges of society and the economy, and technological advances.
Within this framework, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), whose Spanish member is the Spanish Association for Standardization-UNE,has placed at the disposal of organizations a survey for a possible revision of the ISO 9001. The most recent version of this standard was published in 2015.
The ISO 9001 Standard is the world's leading quality management system. It is widely applied by organizations of all sizes and in all sectors.
This aim of this survey, which is available in 13 languages, is to gain first-hand knowledge of the main aspects and needs that will help with the revision to be carried out by the international technical committee ISO/TC 176. The survey is open until 2 December.
In Spain, the Technical Committee for Standardisation UNE CTN 66 discusses, establishes and channels our country's position on ISO 9001. It is open to the incorporation of new experts from companies that wish to participate in the establishment of quality management standards.
In this way, the next version of the ISO 9001 will continue to be a relevant tool in the implementation of quality management systems in organizations.
First published in 1987, the ISO 9001 has been revised four times to adapt to changing needs.
