Authorization: Personnels need to assure their competency as the establishments work to get the Quality Management System. Authorization is the skills and capability to get the aimed results.

Documented Information ( Difference of Document and Record separation will cease)

ISO 9001:2008 instead of the terms of Document and Record, Documented Information phrase will be used.

Outsourcing of Products and Services (Outsourced Processes will now be controlled by a risk-based approach.)

An organization will need a risk-based approach to determine the type and degree of controls to be applied to  all types of products and services provided by external suppliers and external sources.(Where products and services are procured through procurement or procurement of processes and functions).


It is no longer necessary to define the requirements of the Quality Management System, which can not be implemented due to the nature of the work done by an organization.This is due to the different approach of the new version of the ISO 9001 standard, which means that it no longer meets all the requirements of an organization’s Quality Management System to meet all of the requirements of the future standard.

Goods & Services

References made in the ‘product’ (as specified in ISO 9001: 2008) are replaced by ‘goods and services’ statement.


The term ‘continuous development’ will only be changed to ‘development’.

Related Party

An organization seeking to implement the Quality Management System will need to identify the ‘interested parties’ associated with its system.

Related party; (Defined as a ‘stakeholder’ at the same time), affected or perceived as affected by a decision or activity in which they have received the organization’s Quality Management System as a result of its implementation.

Preventive action (there will be no extra requirement for preventive action since the implementation of the Quality Management System itself is a preventive approach)

There will no longer be any specific requirements for ‘Preventive Action’. One of the main objectives of the Quality Management System is already being implemented as a preventive tool.

Process Approach

There will be a requirement for organizations to apply a process approach to their Quality Management Systems; There will also be a list of requirements that define the basic elements of such an approach.

Risks and Opportunities (Institutional risk management practices are introduced in the new standard.)

When planning their Quality Management Systems, organizations will need to determine what risks and opportunities need to be defined in order to ensure the creation of a quality management system that can achieve the intended outputs. In doing so, organizations will need to plan actions to identify these risks and opportunities, apply them to the processes of the Quality Management System, and assess the effectiveness of those actions.
