Understanding ISO 9001 : 2015

Course description

Adopted as a national standard by most countries, it is also the choice of over a million companies for their quality management systems. A major component of procurement strategies in many industrial sectors, it is also associated with product certification programs or part of regulations. The ISO 9000 family of standards represents a broad international consensus. First published in 1987 by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), ISO 9001 has since evolved through 4 revisions. This course presents the latest edition of ISO 9001, published at the end of 2015.
