ISO 9001 Transition 2008 » 2015

Key changes and their significance

The ISO 9000 family of standards is the result of a large international consensus reached under the umbrella of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The key standard of the family is ISO 9001 which sets the requirements for a Quality Management System (QMS). Published for the first time in 1987, and revised in 1994, 2000 and 2008, ISO 9001 has received numerous and significant changes in its latest edition published in the fall of 2015. 

Adopted as National Standard by most countries, ISO 9001 is the foundation for the quality management system of over a million organizations. The corner stone of procurement strategies in many industrial sectors, it is increasingly used in support of product certification schemes and as part of regulatory arrangements.
