THE CLOCK IS TICKING . . . DON’T LEAVE IT TOO LATE
For organisations certified to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, today marks ‘one year to go’ until the transition deadline for the ‘2015’ versions of the leading quality and environmental standards. From 15 September 2018, ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 certificates will no longer be valid – which could have serious implications for your reputation and your ability to do business.
If your organisation hasn’t started planning its transition already, it’s important to start now because you will need to allow enough time to for corrective actions to be implemented and reviewed if any non-conformities are raised. There is no set time for how long a transition will take as the degree of change needed will depend on how an organisation has developed and uses its existing management system. A Gap Analysis can help you identify areas within your business to focus on and will help your auditor to estimate realistic timescales for the transition assessment.
