LRQA ISO Standards Update: LRQA launches range of new ISO standard transition services

With the major ISO standards being revised, LRQA is at the forefront of communicating the changes to both existing and potential clients. Through online tools, innovative training workshops, gap analysis and client briefings, we are helping organisations worldwide ensure their seamless transition to the new standards, set for publication in 2015.

With both ISO 9001 (quality) and ISO 14001 (environmental) being at Draft International Standard (DIS) stage, current and future users can access and review the proposed changes. As a result, organisations can start planning for their transition to the new standard when it is published.

The Final Draft International Stage (FDIS) for both of these leading standards is expected during the first six months of 2015, based on current timelines from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). This final key stage of the revision process will see LRQA launch an even broader range of training services to include both Lead Auditor & Internal Auditor courses, all supported with a choice of gap analysis services.

“LRQA has been delivering both bespoke and packaged services for several months, thereby offering organisations the best start to transition to the new standards,” said Kevin Smith, Vice President Strategic Marketing – Certification and Training. “LRQA’s increased range of services will continue to ensure that we keep organisations one step ahead as we move through the ISO revision process.”

Through LRQA’s membership of the Independent International Organisation for Certification (IIOC), LRQA participates in all of the major committees helping to shape the future of the world’ leading ISO standards including ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.
