  • April 2014 – Draft International Standard
  • August 2014 – Draft International Standard

  • “Purchasing” and “outsourcing” are replaced by “external provision of goods and services”
  • Specific references are made to risk, identification of risks and opportunities and planning actions to address risks and opportunities identified. These proposed changes replace preventive action in the current edition of the standard.
  • There is an increased a requirement for senior management to take a greater active involvement in the quality management system.
  • There are now just general requirements for documentation, with no reference to documented quality manual, documented procedures or to quality records. The Committee Draft refers to “Documented Information.”
