‘Infographic: ISO 9001:2015 vs. 2008 revision – What has changed?’ presents all the basic information visually.
‘What are the main differences between ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 9001:2015?’ not only tabulates the 10 clauses of the revised standard in comparison to the previous version, but also has visually presented the arrangement of clauses 4 through 10 according to PDCA cycle:
As a result of the new arrangement in ten clauses, ISO 9001:2015 now has the same unambiguous structure as all standardized management systems, known as a ‘High Level Structure’ (HLS).
There is more emphasis in ISO 9001:2015 on measuring and properly assessing the input and output of processes.
