October 20th, 2014

The buzz about voting on the ISO 9001:2015 has been all over the internet recently. There has been an unbelievable amount of dissent in the discussions from the American camp. Does anybody out there except my colleagues and I think this is a great evolution of the standard? Everybody seems to be moaning about it. They don’t like “risk” – it’s not defined enough.

The Top 5 Reasons Why You Need to Adopt ISO 9001:2015 Now

October 14th, 2014

Easy and Simple ISO

March 03rd, 2014
