ISO 9001-2015: Understanding its Impacts on your Quality Program
 The real impacts of ISO 9001:2015 on your company and what it means to transition to the new standard. This workshop will help you understand what the changes will mean to your company and your quality program.

This includes:

• Explaining the "big" changes in ISO 9001:2015, e.g. "Risk" and "Context."
• Lessons learned from companies implementing the new standard
• Areas that are the hardest to implement and tips on how to do it
• Implementation tips on making the changes in your quality system
• Learning tools that determine what needs to be revised in current systems
Why Attend?
•  Every ISO 9001-registered company or company seeking to be ISO 9001:2015 certified will need to comply with the new standard by September 2018. Understanding what is different is the first step in implementing the updated standard. You will want to ensure that the processes required by ISO 9001:2015 are in place before certification or recertification.

•  You will learn from an expert in ISO 9001:2015, who will help you understand the changes and what other companies have discovered in moving to the new standard.

Whether you have been working on the transition to the new standard or are just starting the process, we will provide valuable information that will help save you money and avoid problems others have experienced
