The Revision of ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 (formerly OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series) opens up new opportunities for the design of your management system: a clearer alignment to corporate strategy, handling of risks and opportunities, advancement of process focus and an intensified look at performance and effectiveness, just to name a few aspects.

This Revision is aimed at adapting the Standard to the changed conditions of a business world that is increasingly becoming dynamic and complex and at the same time it is making the Standard user friendlier. Simultaneous use of several management standards (Integrated Management Systems) is to be made easier. For this purpose, the structure of the Standard has been changed. Now it is adjusted to the harmonized model that will be used for all management system standards in future.

We would like to inform you of ways to successfully design the transition to the new tasks put by ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015.

Currently there are some exciting ISO-developments in the field of management systems!

To inform you right in time about the requirements that are approaching you, we summarized the most important changes expected from the creation of ISO 45001 (formerly OHSAS 18001).

Futhermore, we provide information on the revision of ISO 9001:2015 and explain key concepts like Competence, Changes and Awareness more profoundly.

We created online courses regarding the new ISO 9001:2015 to support you whereever you are. Beyond that, we offer a seminar held in English language in Vienna next year.
