ISO 9001:2008 vs ISO 9001:2015 Comparison Table

 

Interface NRM table of comparison for ISO 9001 Standard

With the new ISO 9001:2015 release earlier this year, there have been some changes to the Quality Management System standard. We have put together the table below as a convenient way for clients to distinguish the changes, and see how they compare to the previous ISO 9001:2008 version. The structure of the new standard is now Annex SL and therefore some significant clauses have changed.
