Today, 10 November, marks World Quality Day, a global event run by the Chartered Quality Institute, whose vision is a world where all organisations optimise value for their stakeholders through excellence in governance, assurance and improvement.
World Quality Day encourages organisations worldwide to celebrate their achievements in quality. It is therefore timely to reflect on the publication of international quality management system standard ISO 9001:2015 almost fourteen months ago, and the opportunity it presents to organisations to make their management systems and associated supply chains even more powerful and beneficial, to raise their levels of performance and increase efficiency, and to improve customer satisfaction.
Organisations were given three years to transition to the revised standard. That said, the clock is ticking, and the transition deadline of September 2018 is fast approaching.
Forward-thinking businesses are leading the way, creating a competitive advantage in the eyes of their clients and employees. Mapping out a transition plan to the new standard, including both training and assessment services, is positioning early adopters as the leaders in their industry in quality and risk management. Watch the Nuvia video case study on why they took the decision to transition early and the benefits that ISO 9001:2015 has brought to their organisation.
