ISO-9001:2015 is still in Committee Draft (CD) status. The ISO member bodies did vote to move it to a Draft International Standard (DIS) once comments from the Committee Draft vote are resolved. The publication of the DIS version is anticipated in 2Q. Rest assured that UL DQS will notify our certified customers upon publication as a DIS. At that time, the draft will be far enough through the revision cycle for us to start providing customer informational sessions and offer optional gap assessments. The final publication of ISO 9001:2015 is not expected until the latter half of 2015. Once published, the International Accreditation Forum will provide requirements on the allowed transition period for upgrade of certificates to the new version. A time period of two to three years is anticipated.

If an organization is interested in purchasing a copy of the Committee Draft, it can be attained at the link below. However, keep in mind that it will still need to go from CD to DIS to Final Draft International Standard (FDIS) to an ISO standard before the wording is final.
As always, we will do our best to keep you informed on the latest updates to standards. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
