According to ISO annual survey published in November 2017, 1,025,761 certificates were issued based on ISO 9001:2008 but only 80,596 certificates based on the new ISO 9001:2015 during 2016.
In spite of the 3-year transition period - starting from 31 Dec 201 - for achieving the ISO 9001:2015 certification, there are still numerous organizations which have yet to adapt to the new procedures for staying competitive in the challenging global market.
ISO-certified companies need to undergo the certification process to be ready for September 2018: this means there are only 9 months left to update Quality Management Systems to the latest version of ISO 9001.
These changes have an impact on weighing devices and weighing processes, as weight measurements are a critical process step which can significantly affect quality.
Mettler-Toledo's white paper highlights the changes in the revised standard of ISO 9001:2015 and what this means for weighing processes, and describes the timeline associated with transition to the new version.
Additionally, it helps the reader to understand the new approach focused on risk-based thinking and its effect on weighing processes. These recommendations enable business as well as other sectors to meet the requirements for being more productive and ensuring customer satisfaction at the same time.
