ISO 9001 hasn't changed much in the last 15 years... until now! ISO 9001:2015 is a MAJOR revision. A LOT has changed. Requirements have been added and removed. Content has shifted to different sections and clauses. ISO 9001:2015 is built upon a completely different structure with the adoption of Annex SL. This may seem like a lot to take in, and it is. Fortunately, bestselling author Craig Cochran has translated ISO 9001:2015 into plain English that anyone can understand.

Just as he did with the bestselling ISO 9001 in Plain English Cochran has written a comprehensive yet easily understandable guide to ISO 9001:2015. ISO 9001:2015 in Plain English was written so that anyone at any level of the organization can get to the heart of the standard’s requirements and how they apply to the organization quickly and simply. Plus, Cochran shows what has changed between the 2008 and 2015 version.

This straightforward book is ideal for people who are new to ISO 9001:2015, experienced ISO coordinators who want to get more out of an established system as they transition to the new standard, and for employees who just need a basic understanding of what ISO 9001:2015 is and how it applies to them.

Cochran explains each of ISO 9001:2015’s sections and clauses using real-world examples and frequently asked questions.

The 2015 edition of ISO 9001 has been modernized to update terminology and content to meet current and anticipated user needs. The major emphasis of ISO 9001:2015 is still consistent provision of products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.

This book explains the meaning and intent of the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 and discusses the requirements as they relate to each of the product categories. Where appropriate, it includes an elaboration of why the requirements are important. It also includes typical audit-type questions that an organization may consider to assess conformity to internal needs and ISO 9001 requirements. Recommendations for implementation are also included.

This book addresses the needs of:

Users and organizations seeking a general understanding of the contents of ISO 9001:2015 Users and organizations desiring guidance to ensure their ISO 9001:2015 QMS meets the new version requirements Users and organizations considering the use of ISO 9001:2015 as a foundation for the development of a comprehensive QMS Educators who require a textbook to accompany a training class or course on ISO 9001:2015 Auditors who desire to increase their level of auditing competence

Authors Cianfrani and West, members of the expert group that developed ISO 9001:2015, strive to provide a context for all requirements to enable you to develop and deploy processes that will strengthen your QMS. Getting or retaining a certificate is not the real objective. Satisfied customers and organizational sustainability should be primary objectives for the organization.

ISO 9001: 2015 In Brief provides an introduction to quality management systems for students, newcomers and busy executives, with a user friendly, simplified explanation of the history, the requirements and benefits of the new standard.

This short, easy-to-understand reference tool also helps organisations to quickly set up an ISO 9001:2015 compliant Quality Management System for themselves at minimal expense and without high consultancy fees.

Now in its fourth edition, ISO 9001:2015 In Brief consists of a number of chapters covering topics like:

What is a QMS?

What other standards are based on ISO 9001:2015?

– Details of other standards that replicate or are broadly based on ISO 9001:2015.

This is supported by:
Annex A – A summary of the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 - including an overview of the content of the various clauses and sub clauses, the likely documentation required and how these would affect an organization. A cross-reference to the previous ISO 9001:2008 Clauses is also provided as well as a complete bibliography and glossary.
