ISO 9001:2015 Overview

Lloyd's Register developed this handout to provide organisations with an insight into the international quality management system (QMS) standard, ISO 9001:2015. Organisations certificated to ISO 9001:2008 have three years from September 2015 to transition to the revised standard. As a result, Lloyd's Register recognises there is an ongoing demand for knowledge until September 2018.

ISO 9001 has been the subject of a comprehensive rewrite to ensure that the purpose of the standard appropriately supports the changing needs of today’s world and reflects the increasingly complex environments in which organisations operate.
