How to transition to ISO 9001:2015

IAF has informed that as of 15th of March 2018, conformity assessment bodies must conduct all ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 initial, surveillance and recertification audits to the new versions - ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015. The outcomes of such audits shall be considered by the CAB for further decision on accredited certifications to ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 as deemed appropriate. In addition, the General Assembly, acting on the recommendation of the Technical Committee, resolved that at the end of the transition period, 15th of September 2018, all ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 certifications shall expire or be withdrawn.

Note that failure to achieve certification to the 2015 standard by the deadline means that your certification is no longer valid and that these dates and information are applicable to all countries without exception.
