ISO- DEADLINE: Update on management systems of quality and ecology


The transition period of the new ISO 9001:2015, and  ISO 14001:2015 versions has begun with its official publication from 15.09.2015 until 15.09.2018 (three year period). After this date, the previous edition’s certificates of the standards –  ISO 9001:2008 and/or ISO 14001:2004  will not be valid.

Certification agencies have a right to:

  1. Give out the certificates (carry out certification audits) according to the ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004 until march 2017- after 18 months from the day of publication.
  2. Give out the certificates on ISO 9001:2015, and ISO 14001:2015, fulfilling the conditions listed below:
    • auditors (both internal and external auditors on the enterprises) must be trained on the new versions of the standard. Notes on such training should be maintained in an operational form, and must contain the education program and assessment method used for verification of auditors’ competence.
    • Agency’s certification procedures must be carried out in accordance with the requirements of the standard.
    • A certified organization has met all of the requirements of ISO 9001 and/or  ISO 14001

In case if a gradual (phased) approach is used to the process of transition to the new versions of the standard, the agency must ensure that the documented conclusions (reports) on the results of the audits demonstrate a step by step implementation of the ISO 9001:2015, and ISO 14001:2015 requirements. At the same time, the quality  and/or ecology management system of an organization fully corresponds to the previous version of the standard, but also includes the elements from the new versions . According to the results of an audit, the certificate’s validity is confirmed in line with ISO 9001:2015 and/or ISO 14001:2015.

The ISO 9001:2015 and/or ISO 14001:2015 is given out after all of the requirements are met.
