It is very common question to many prospects about selecting of ISO 9001 version. Because ISO 9001:2015 version as well as ISO 9001:2008 version is also available now. So, very commonly it is a question to many new prospects which one is right for him?
The ISO 9001:2008 is updated and new version is available now. So, for whose of you are trying to obtain new certificate then it is best to adapt the new or the latest version. There are many facilities of adopting ISO 9001:2015 version.
One of the common problems of ISO 9001:2008 is the documentation hassle. Quality Manual and Mandatory SOP are the two major and big documentation issues. Usually without an iso consultant most of the companies are una ble to do that. So, adopting ISO 9001:2008. means you will have to spend extra money for ISO Documentation.
On the other hand in ISO 9001:2015, it is not mandatory to create quality manual and mandatory SOP. So, it is not required to hire an ISO consultant for preparing the big volume manual and SOP. So, latest version of ISO 9001 is definitely cost savvy.
However, training is necessary for implementing ISO 9001 standard in your organization. So, when you will make contract with any certification body please also talk with the CB about ISO training. If you can take training from the CB then it will save money from hiring a ISO trainer.
The another disadvantage of ISO 9001:2008 is, after 15 Sept, 2018 it will not be a valid standard. You cannot submit it to anywhere. So, if you take ISO 9001 2008 version you will have to change it again before three years. So, it is not logical to adopt ISO 9001:2008.
