ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems, the world's leading quality management standard, has been revised.
All ISO standards are reviewed every five years to establish if a revision is required to keep it current and relevant for the marketplace. ISO 9001:2015 is designed to respond to the latest trends and be compatible with other management systems such as ISO 14001.

The new version follows a new, higher level structure [PDF] to make it easier to use in conjunction with other management system standards, with increased importance given to risk. More information about the changes can be found in the news area.
Organisations are granted a three-year transition period after the revision has been published to migrate their quality management system to the new edition of the standard.
More detailed information about the revision and ISO 9001 can be found on the Technical Committee page
