ISO 9001:2015 is a significant upgrade to ISO requirements. Nearly every sector and its requirements (AS9100D:2016, IATF 16949:2016, etc.) and every manufacturer are affected. ISO 9001:2015 introduces a different path to a company instead of developing standardized quality control programs that extend to all accredited organizations. Organizations need to develop their quality control processes depending on the environment (industry) they are working in. With more than 1 million organizations registered in ISO 9001 in more than 169 countries, many welcomed a move to update their certification to ISO 9001:2015 to fulfill the September 2018 deadline as soon as possible.
