WHAT ARE THE MAIN DIFFERENCES BETWEEN ISO 9001:2008 AND THE 2015 REVISION?
The intention of the new model is not to provide a sequence of activities but to provide a framework which can be applied flexibly in any organization. It consists of basic clauses, in addition to introductory clauses, which follows PDCA cycle and process approach consistent to organization’s activities. It is defined in High Level Structure thus making other standards to integrate easily. Top management
accountability is emphasized and documentation has been made more flexible in the new version.
