In September 2015 international standardization organization (ISO) accepted the fifth version of ISO 9001 standard and the third version of ISO 14001 standard. The revised documents have a number of essential differences from the previous ones, and will require analysis of the extent in which the existing system meets the new requirements and what needs to be done to achieve such conformity, from organizations whose management systems have already been certified or where such certification is planned.
Meeting the requirements of new standards, "PKOP" LLP initiated the process of transition of the integrated management system in accordance with requirements of new versions of ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015.
Within the process of transition, the ICS specialists held:
- training of specialists (quality managers, internal auditors, management);
- adaptation of control processes;
- integration of different management systems and update of documentation;
- monitoring of new processes.
The certification audits have been planned for September 2017.
