Committee Responsible for ISO 9001:2015 Announces ISO 9001 User Survey 2020

Is the standard adequate, or should it be improved? Deadline: Dec. 31, 2020

Published: Thursday, August 13, 2020 - 11:00

(ISO: Geneva) -- The committee responsible for the development of the international standard, ISO 9001:2015—"Quality management systems—Requirements," has announced a user survey to gather information on the value of ISO 9001:2015.

According to a press release from ISO/Technical Committee 176/Subcommittee 2, ISO 9001:2015 is currently undergoing a formal "systematic review" that is due to close on Dec. 2, 2020. Following the review, ISO/TC 176/SC2 will have up to six months in which to decide whether the standard should be "confirmed" (i.e., left unchanged), be revised or amended, or be withdrawn.

As an input to making the decision, SC2 would like to obtain the views of users of ISO 9001:2015 on whether the standard is adequate or if it should be improved.

The goal is to capture:
• Data on the value to organizations of implementing a quality management system in accordance with the requirements of the current 2015 edition of ISO 9001
• Data on its advantages and disadvantages
• User opinions on how to ensure this standard remains relevant in the future

In addition, ISO/TC 176 has been giving consideration to "future concepts" for quality. SC2 would like to test the acceptability of such concepts with users, for potential inclusion in a future edition of ISO 9001.

The committee invites all categories of users of ISO 9001 from all over the world to participate in a global survey about ISO 9001's future, available here. For your convenience, the survey has been developed in 13 languages on SurveyMonkey; choose the language that is most convenient for you using the language link in the upper right corner of the survey page. In addition, a Persian version is available on Google Forms via this link. You can also find a link to the survey on the ISO/TC176/SC2 website.

There are also links on the following social media:
LinkedIn
Facebook
Twitter

The survey consists of 20 questions and takes about 10 to 15 minutes to complete. The survey will close on Dec. 31, 2020.

User contributions are very important to ensure the continued relevance, usefulness, and recognition of the international standard ISO 9001, and the committee would be grateful to receive your input via the survey.
