Transition Timeline
ISO 9001:2015, released September 15, 2015, is the new universal quality management system standard. ISO 9001:2015 Certification Audits can be scheduled at any time. Transition from ISO 9001:2008 to ISO 9001:2015 must be completed by September 15th 2018.

Transition to ISO 9001: 2015 may be accomplished during:

  • a scheduled Surveillance Audit (preferred),
  • a scheduled Recertification Audit, or
  • a scheduled special “upgrade” audit.

Any ISO 9001:2015 Transition Audit normally should be completed by May 14, 2018, to allow ample time for post-audit transition activity, depending on the policy of the certification body.

Although not recommended, ISO 9001:2008 Certification Audits still may be scheduled early in 2017, depending on the policy of the certification body.

All certificates to ISO 9001:2008 (and ISO 14001:2004) expire on or before midnight September 15th 2018.
