ISO 9001:2015 - Transition Course
This course will demonstrate all you need to know about transitioning to the new ISO 9001:2015 standard including details of changes to Annex SL.

Most organisations have more than one management system standard to implement. By integrating and combining key aspects of management systems, conflicts and duplication are kept to a minimum, whilst saving time and resource. Annex SL (previously known as ISO Guide 83) is a document which forms the basis of a generic management system. Eventually all ISO standards (new & revised) will use the structure outlined in the Annex.

Duration - 2 Days

Thank you for an excellent course which was greatly enjoyed in all respects. It was a real “Crammer” but has undoubtedly fired my imagination as to what can be achieved.
