ISO 9001:2015 remains unchanged, next revision ISO 9001:2030

14. 9. 2022

Members of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Technical Committee 176, Sub-Committee 2 (TC176/SC2) have taken the surprising decision not to proceed with the much-anticipated update of ISO 9001:2015.

In 2020 members of C176/SC2 conducted a systematic review of ISO 9001:2015 “Quality management systems — Requirements”. The review resulted in a majority vote to leave ISO 9001:2015 unchanged. This may mean that, that after following a further systematic review starting in 5 years, plus time for the review, and then 3 years allowed time for development, a new edition of ISO 9001 may not be published until 2030.

In 2020 also a survey of ISO 9001 users was conducted. The purpose of the survey was to gather the thoughts of ISO 9001 end users on the current version of the Standard and to secure their ideas as to what new material the next edition of the Standard should contain.

Many users wish to see the standard revised to improve clarity and to give greater value to users. The business environment is changing so quickly, especially by the ongoing pace of digital transformation but also by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Consequently, it was suggested that the process should start with a preliminary phase of the standard life cycle, where it would be examined whether there is a need to start the revision of ISO 9001 earlier than usual.
