The long anticipated Final Draft (FDIS) of the new ISO 9001:2015 International Standard was finally published on Friday. Chair of the ISO subcommittee revising the standard, Nigel Croft, commented on whether there were any major changes in this latest development:
“Compared to the DIS, changes are relatively minor. The most extensive ones have been to the Introduction and figures, which have been greatly simplified, with some of the explanatory text being moved to an informative Annex. The terms and definitions have now been removed from the Standard and added to ISO 9000”.
