Members of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Technical Committee 176, Sub-Committee 2 (TC176/SC2) have taken the surprising decision not to proceed with the much-anticipated update of ISO 9001:2015.
TC176/SC2 conducted a systematic review of ISO 9001:2015 “Quality management systems — Requirements”. By the narrowest of margins, they agreed that ISO 9001:2015 should be unchanged.
The committee proposes that:
– It will examine if a revision of ISO 9001 should be started earlier than would usually be determined through the systematic review process
– The Strategic Planning and Operations Task Group (SPOTG) should review the full portfolio of SC2 standards
