ISO 22301:2019 Business Continuity Transition

The transition period to move from ISO 22301:2012 to the 2019 version was extended by 6 months due to covid-19. It will now end on the 30th April 2023. During the transition period both versions of the standard are valid but it makes sense if you are implementing a new system in the near future to base it on the 2019 version and be audited against this version.

There has never been a better time to review and update your plans regarding your business continuity.

AS 9100 rev D Published

AS9100D Quality Management Systems – Requirements for Aviation, Space, and Defense Organizations was published last month. The international standard includes the ISO 9001:2015 quality management system requirements and specifies additional aviation, space, and defense industry requirements, definitions, and notes.

We have already started work with our aerospace clients on the implementation of the updated standard as the transition period is expected to be 2 years (reduced from 3 due to the delayed publication). Key Dates June 2017 all audits after this to be to the new standard. September 2018 transition complete old certificates no longer valid.

Key Changes (aviation, space and defense requirements) include:

  • Product safety added in a separate clause and in selected areas
  • Counterfeit parts prevention added in a separate clause and in selected areas
  • Risk merged current 9100 requirements with the new ISO requirements and emphasis on risks in operational processes
  • Awareness reinforced requirements for awareness of individual contribution to quality
  • Human factors included as a consideration in nonconformity / corrective action
  • Configuration management clarified and improved to address stakeholder needs

Further information on the standard and transition is available by contacting us and also on the IAQG website

ISO 14001:2015 delay

Expected release date of ISO 14001 has been changed from early 2015 to mid- 2015 due to technical challenges that arose at the latest committee meeting in Botswana in June this year. This means that it will now coincide with the release of ISO 9001:2015 if everything else goes to plan.
