Update on Publication of ISO 45001

The International Standard ISO 45001 will not be released in 2017 as anticipated. Since DIS 1 did not obtain the necessary approval of more than 75%,  the International Committee decided in June 2016 that a second draft standard (DIS 2) was required. However, the revision of the current draft standard requires more time than originally planned. A final meeting of the Working Group will be held in Vienna in February 2017, to discuss all comments and objections as well as to prepare the content for the second DIS. Therefore, DIS 2 is to be expected in March/April 2017, and the final draft (FDIS) should be released in October/November 2017 at the earliest.

Against this backdrop, the publication of DIN ISO 45001 is not expected until spring 2018.

We will keep you up-to-date on any further developments of ISO 450001.
