Certification Body Expectations for Transition to ISO 9001:2015 Certification

questions5Recognizing the anxiety and confusion about how much documented information an auditor should be expecting for ISO 9001:2015 audits from consultants, industry and auditors, Platinum has prepared an expectations document that will give implementers and auditors alike a perspective on things to consider when determining the formality of process controls when addressing the requirements of ISO 9001:2015.

Platinum ISO 9001:2015 Expectations (PDF)

This document is in no way prescriptive, but it helps you consider the complexity of the requirements and your ability to prove an established systems/process approach rather than a people-based approach to meeting requirements to interested parties.

This is the first of its kind. Platinum is hearing an industry concern/need and this is our approach to level the playing field and to push for consistency in our auditor expectations. It will also provide the groundwork to open the door for dialogue during pre-transition communications. We hope you find this document helpful. We will update it and make it available as new information is learned through the audit process and from accreditation authorities.

Platinum is dedicated to getting the word out about the transition to ISO 9001:2015. If you missed our first webinar event on April 12, you may listen to the webinar recording and read the Questions and Answers discussed during the webinar using the links below.

If your certification body is not providing the information you need to transition from 9001:2008 to 9001 2015, we are happy to help you. Transferring your good standing, accredited certification is easy and stress-free – and it doesn’t cost anything to do it. Contact us to get more information or to get the process started!
