Topic:   “ISO 9001 Revision DIS Status”


ISO 9001 is due for a major revision in 2015.  The US Technical Advisory Group (TAG) has been working with other countries on this, and the current Draft International Standard (DIS) is released.

What do changes to the Quality Standard look like? How will this change what you have in place already?  What does the timeline look like right now?  What is the status of the Environmental Standard, ISO 14001 (also due for revision in 2015)?

Speaker Bio:

Mary McDonald, a member of the US TAG since 1995 and a Senior ASQ Member, will review the DIS for expert users, and provide commentary on rationale for changes.   She is CEO/CTO of McDonald Consulting Group, a firm that specializes in system implementation and improvement.  She is also a Fellow of the International Microelectronics and Packaging Society.
