Upgrade to ISO9001:2015 from ISO9001:2008
Mark Johnson, Member
I own a ISO 9001:2008 company and want to upgrade it from 9001:2008 to 9001:2015. I need to do an internal audit for it. I want to know how can I upgrade my ISO certification and what new modules have been added into it. And how can I manage these new added modules.

How to Upgrade to ISO 9001:2015 from ISO 9001:2008
David Porter, Member
Recently ISO 9001:2008 has been upgraded to ISO 9001:2015 and it is amended for 10 years. After March 2017 every certification body issues ISO: 9001 2015 certificates. If a company is already ISO: 9001 2008 certified then their recertification will be of ISO: 9001 2015.
ISO: 9001 2015 has two new modules and the rest of ISO: 9001 2015 is the same as ISO 9001: 2008. Only the contexts of test and risk analysis are newly amended.
Before upgrading to ISO: 9001 2015, internal and external issues need to be resolved.
I am using a quality management software MyEasyISO and this software is the best quality management software I have ever used. It has predefined formats for each and every module and sub module. MyEasyISO is specially designed for helping people with upgrading their ISO. And with the preparations that need to be made before certification. It has a user-friendly layout and is very easy to use, you just need to enter the data in the fields and save it. Later you can export your data in xls format.
I am really happy with it.

Before an internal audit you must ensure eligibility of your organization to be an ISO certified entity. There are some checkpoints which need to be taken care of before an internal audit is done:
1. Preventive Maintenance schedule.
2. Earthing Pit record of earth Leakage (earth to neutral voltage), if you are a manufacturing firm.
3. Training schedule of your employees record.
4. Breakdown intimation report.
5. Sales record.
You need to first create all these records before thinking about an audit. First buy a new standard that will give you a brief description. Then try MyeasyISO.

Upgrading from ISO9001:2008 to ISO9001:2015

ISO Stands for International Organisation for Standardization. ISO is an international standard whose prime aim is to optimise the quality process of an organization that will improve overall performance of an organisation in terms of Productivity and Yields.
This standard does NOT give any conformity to the products but it gives conformity to the processes an organisation is adopting to produce its product.
ISO is nothing but a quality management system that will be adopted by organisations to enhance quality in their process. Many organizations adopted ISO for enhancing quality in their service and support for better customer satisfaction. ISO was recently upgraded from ISO 9001 2008 to ISO 9001 2015. And it is now amended for 10 years.

Context of Organization in ISO9001:2015
Mark Johnson, Member
@parkpeter: 12. "Context of Organization" defines the objective and aim of an organization. It is related to the internal and external environment of an organization and determining those internal and external issues that will be a restriction in achieving the desired quality for an organization.

"Context of Organization" is nothing but a monitoring system for internal and external issues. These internal and external issues need to be solved before applying for an ISO certification. There are some positive and negative factors of an organization.

"Context of Organization" determines why some factors are positive and what are the reasons behind them to be a positive factor. On the other hand, if there is a negative factor of an organization, then context of organization is helpful in determining why this factor is a negative factor and how to make this negative factor into a positive one.
