Re-certification audit ISO 9001: 2015 standard

ISO 9001:2015 key focus is undoubtedly had some differences in some areas. As for me main changes would be there will be no more Quality Manual needed for you to certify under this new standard ISO 9001:2015 version. That's a huge u turn since previous version, it is a very important element needed as requirement to be audited. Previously ISO 9001:2008, there even company or organization was denied to be visited by auditor for re certification if the quality manual is not readily available or incomplete.

 More focus on risk analysis that is expected to be implemented in the new ISO 9001 version. As for bigger and established organization already adopt risk analysis into their planning and continuous improvement and development, it is sure aligned to the new version of ISO 9001:2015. But it might get difficult for small and medium organization especially a traditional one to implement this is not a piece of cake. Some even hired a consultants to do so or additional recruitment or at least sent somebody for a short course to understand how to do it right.

The best way to get a Re certification audit ISO 9001: 2015 standard successfully, is to be early bidder. Yes, indeed it is still new, but this goes same to the re-certification body auditor as well. So first time audit using a brand new standard would be less strict and more grey area to look into and discuss. After a year or so, the new standards adapt and the requirement might get stringent as well. So go for the Re-certification audit ISO 9001: 2015 standard earlier to certified without hassle.
