ISO 9001:2015 / ISO 14001:2015 New Standards Summary Course Launched

LRQA is pleased to announce the launch of ISO 9001:2015 / ISO 14001:2015 New Standards Summary course.

With the publication of ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 those involved with the implementation of the new standards are now starting to plan and prepare for their transition journey. Client feedback has told us that there is an integral need for a basic understanding on the new Annex SL structure and the major changes ahead for all organisations and their management system teams. 

No matter what your role or responsibility in implementing the new standards a great starting place for all those involved is LRQA’s half day ‘New Standards Summary’ course which is a quick, top-level overview of the main changes to the standards and areas that require focus.


There are four key elements applicable to the new structure of Annex SL, and a basic understanding of these elements needs to be understood before you can begin to implement the changes. The following four elements will be covered within the half-day session: 

Risk- based thinking 

Learn how risk is incorporated into the new systems and how to identify and apply mitigation actions to significant internal and external issues.

Process management 

Process management is now an integral element of the new standards. You will gain a basic understanding of the process management elements and how to manage and maintain them within the new standards. 


We will be looking at the revised expectations for Leadership and the demonstrable policies that may impact your organisation. Expand your knowledge on what is expected from Top Management and their required involvement in your organisation’s management system.

Performance evaluation

We will discuss internal auditing approaches and methodologies and the key characteristics of an effective analysis approach now required within the new standards.
