ISO 45001 publication timeline on-track


Date: 2 March 2017


ISO/PC 283/WG1, the Working Group responsible for developing the new ISO 45001 occupational health and safety standard by the International Organisation for Standardization (ISO), met in Vienna last month to review the changes submitted to the DIS version of the proposed ISO 45001 standard.  ISO 45001 will replace the existing OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health and Safety standard.


During the February meetings, the Working Group completed the review of comments received from the previous set of meetings held in Lithuania in November 2016, during which they agreed the texts for the second draft international standard (DIS2) stage for the majority of clauses 4 through to 10.


Based on this progress and the latest information from the Working Group, the timeline for ISO 45001 publication currently remains in line with what GVL previously published, as follows:



The next ISO/PC 283/WG1 meeting has been scheduled in Malaysia during September 2017, where the results of the DIS2 ballot and resulting comments will be reviewed to determine the next steps in the development process.


If DIS2 is approved and the final draft international standard (FDIS) stage is not required, publication could be as early as October/November 2017.  However, if FDIS is required, then publication is likely to be March 2018.


With all the major ISO standards being revised, GVL is working hard to ensure up-to-date information is communicated on the changes.  So-much-so, GVL is an active member of the mirror committee (HS1) for the development of the new ISO 45001.
