A CQI and IRCA certified ISO 9001:2015 Auditor Transition (Quality Management Systems) training course (ref:17970)

The new requirements of ISO 9001:2015, including a shifted emphasis demanding more direct involvement in the management system by top management, will require internal and external auditors to widen their focus.  As such, this ISO 9001 auditor transition training course explores ISO 9001:2015 in terms of structure, terminology and interpretation in order for auditors to:

  • understand the way the emphasis of ISO 9001 has changed
  • identify any change in approach necessary to competently conduct an audit against ISO 9001:2015
  • implement the changes required and communicate the implications these changes will have for organisations
  • meet the IRCA upgrade requirements for registered auditors.

  • Differences between ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 9001:2015 – structure, terminology and interpretation.
  • Annex SL, the new structure for management system standards, in terms of:
    • Context of the organisation, scope and objectives.
    • Leadership.
    • Planning.
    • Managing Risk, and
    • Support.
  • The audit life cycle – an Auditor’s approach to assessing the changes.
  • Involvement of top management.
  • Implications for organisations.
  • Timeline for the transition from ISO 9001:2008 to ISO 9001:2015

  • Existing internal and external auditors who need to audit against ISO 9001:2015.
  • Those involved in the internal audit programme who will be responsible for implementing the changes.
  • Policy makers / senior managers needing to understand how the changes will impact their business.
  • Quality Managers, management system practitioners and/or process owners.
  • Qualified Auditors needing to upgrade their auditor status to the new standard.

CQI and IRCA recommend delegates attending this course have an in-depth knowledge of ISO 9001:2008.

By the end of this ISO 9001 auditor transition training course, delegates will be able to:

  • assess the differences between ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 9001:2015
  • communicate to others what needs to change to meet the new requirements of the standard
  • plan and prepare for revisions to existing management systems and implement the necessary changes
