View Training ScheduleIntroduction

MRC’s ISO Certification gives participants insight into the content and spirit of the new ISO 9001:2015 standard.  Participants learn what to anticipate in the new standard and the changes that may be required for conformity. 

Session content includes:  1.) An overview of when the standard will become reality, 2.) strategies for setting the foundation for compliance, and 3.) appropriate Quality Management procedures to align with organizational vision, mission, and objectives.

Attendees will also gain insight to the 1.) specifics of the new requirements, 2.) the transition period to anticipate after standard release, 3.) the elements that are the same/different/new between 2015 and existing standards,

MRC’s ISO Certification program helps attendees understand how to determine the scope of the Quality Management System, organizational concepts and context, and how to balance the needs and expectations of interested parties.

In particular, we will examine language changes from documents and records to documented information, and the implications of this change.  We also examine risk-based thinking requirements and the interaction with corrective action and preventive action.

New requirements for top management leadership and staff awareness/competence, and internal audit and certification audit implications are further areas of study.
