A larger base of willing committee members will help us to ensure we have a sustainable and robust standards development process, and can manage wider work programmes where several projects can be executed at the same time.
We are less than a year away from the deadline for those certified to ISO 9001:2008 to make the transition to ISO 9001:2015 (in New Zealand to AS/NZS ISO 9001:2016). ISO outlined a transition period of 3 years for those with accredited certification to the 2008 standard to arrange recertification to the newer standard, and this period will end on 15 September 2018.
