The past week has seen two significant developments in relation to the on-going ISO Standards Revision process and LRQA’s Deputy Technical Director Steve Williams, played a key role in both of these.
In this two-minute video: Setting the Standard: Committing to Excellence, the Head of Operational Standards at the TelecityGroup talks about how its LRQA certified management systems are benefiting its European business.
The current revisions of the management systems standards ISO 9001 (quality) and ISO 14001 (environmental) incorporate the high level structure and common terminology from ISO Directive Annex SL. This means that the two standards are now much more closely aligned, which will be useful for all organisations planning their transition to the new standards, as well as those who have or who are considering developing an integrated management system.
The ISO Technical Working Group (TC176 SC2) responsible for revising international quality management system standard ISO 9001 met in Galway, Ireland, last week. With the Draft International Standard (DIS) being approved earlier this month, the meeting saw over 100 experts and observers coming together to review the 3000+ comments relating to the DIS.
Following a tweet yesterday from @ISOstandards - the official Twitter account for the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) - the Draft International Standard (DIS) for international environmental management system standard ISO 14001 has been approved and will now move to the FDIS stage.
Steve Williams - LRQA Deputy Technical Director - has been elected to the committee as an external liaison member, representing the interests of the IIOC, whose Chairman is Mike James, Managing Director LRQA.
The Manufacturing Technology Centre, based in Coventry, has recently achieved ISO 9001 (quality management) certification from LRQA.
